Something like this: enumerate all windows using GetWindows(), filter only those that belong to current thread (GetWindowThreadProcessId()), then filter only those that have DS_MODALFRAME style, then select the topmost of them (using GW_HWNDNEXT with GetWindow() will I guess retrieve windows right in Z-order). Will this work?

Ok, please stop - I have no intention of coding something so
complicated just for a bug that's not even present anymore in the
latest version of the product (talking about visual studio here).
Every workaround for the bug in VS2008 just means that there's a
chance we break an app that does everything right instead.
