Summary0005095: Search box persists for some seconds after closing window or shifting focus
DescriptionThe new search box in 2.7 always stays onscreen for some seconds even though the window(widget) it came from has been closed down or is no longer in focus. It's even still shown if I alt-tab out of DR to report this bug. The text box no longer allows me to change or highlight the text, but the arrow buttons still work.

Cases where I've observed lingering search boxes so far are:
A) Searching in 'Create model' and clicking ok or cancel without having pressed escape to close the search box. If I quickly reopen 'Create model', click on the newly opened window and type something the search box stays up and can be used normally. Same goes for 'Create entity' or 'Insert prefab'.
B) Searching in the media browser or entity inspector. If I shift focus, i.e. to orthoview, the search box persists some seconds: the arrow buttons still work, but I can't enter text after clicking on the text field. If I quickly shift focus back to the media browser/entity inspector the search box stays and can be used normally again.

The search box doesn't linger in 'Create speaker'.
Steps To ReproduceFor 'Create model'
1) 'Create model', click in the list to set focus on this new window
2) Type in 'sto', you'll highlight a stone arch.
3) Press on ok or cancel. The search box stays open even if alt-tabbing out of DR. Text can't be entered, but the arrow buttons still respond to clicks.

4) Quickly reopen 'Create model' and click in the list again before the search box disappears.
5) Type in 'ol' so the search box now contains 'stool'. It'll highlight a stool for you.

Fixed in 12f38b30a. The search popup now detects if the parent window is minimized, hidden, moved or losing focus.

(I'm assuming I shouldn't open a new issue when providing feedback for an issue that's been set as resolved)
Testing the fix in 2.7pre3:
Case A looks to have been solved completely, wasn't able to get a lingering search box when using a right-click menu like Create model or Insert prefab anymore.

However, Case B still seems to be there:
If I search something in the media browser or entity inspector, then click on orthoview or switch to entity inspector/media browser respectively, the box still takes some time to disappear.
Unlike Case A this could even be useful behaviour, but at present you can't click on the text field to keep typing, you need to click into the media browser/entity inspector first.

See my latest note (didn't know I can post a note with reopening an issue)

In any case, I think the search box should disappear as soon as you switch between media browser <-> entity inspector. At present I can have 2 boxes visible simultaneously.

Another fix attempt is in a40214dc9. The popup will now close when the user clicks on anything outside the active tree view.
