'restart is required' notification

I just installed some updates with PackageKit in F15, and got the 'A
restart is required' notification. This is currently a child dialog of
the PackageKit window. When the notification popped up, *only* it was
popped to the front - the PackageKit window remained hidden behind other
apps. So the 'Restart is required' child window looked a bit odd, shorn
from the context of its parent window. Is it supposed to work like this,
or should the parent window also have been popped to the front?

(For true polish, I think it'd be nice if the 'restart is required'
dialog were a Shell-y thing like the new PolicyKit authentication
dialogs, but that's really just a side note).

Also, the dialog and PackageKit itself seemed to just disappear after
about 30 seconds or so, I don't have a crash report from abrt so I'm not
sure what happened to it.
