Do you use KDE as a desktop environment?

KDE yes.

KDE frequently fails to follow guidelines on window management.

There are some settings in Edit > Preferences > Appearance > Quirks which might help with this issue, notably "All floating windows are dialogs"

We don't consider this to be an Ardour bug. It works correctly in almost all non-KDE window managers (and the ones it is broken in also do not follow guidelines)

> guidelines on window management

Never knew there was such a thing. So I learned something new, cool! I don't suppose you know of a site somewhere that lists different DE's compliance?
