Its more a feature than a bug. If multiple app windows are in the same
window group ( of which in a single GTK program with multiple app wins
are ), transient dialogs become transient to the group as a whole. This
is whats happening here - if you page through the app window stack
you'll see the dialogs remain raised. 

This behaviour can be quite useful if you have a multiple app win
application. But its pretty new code and a bit annoying it does this
with such a seemingly simple test case.

Anyway attached is an updated test.py which splits up the group and does
what you expect, though Im sure there is a nicer way to do this
python/gtk wise.
