We have noticed that when using a role of dialog JAWS is going into 
application mode. Is this correct behaviour or a JAWS bug? I see nothing 
in the spec which states that this should happen.

If this is NOT a JAWS bug, what role should we be using for a generic 
dialog container which may contain content (such as tables) as well as 
actions (buttons).
