Prevent tabbing out of a modal window
Currently, a modal window allows for tabbing out of the window to controls on the page below.
See forum posts

On a web app I run into the problem where the dialog is dependent on a grid row to be present, but due to tabbing out of the not so modal window I can delete the applicable grid row removing the context on which the modal window is based.

This is a bug.

This is already available since several versions. Focus is trapped only in the modal popup:

This appears to have been fixed at some point.

It is a problem when you have a modal up and a user can still interact with the site behind the overlay, period.

From a UX perspective, this is a bug.
