Grab documentation does not have caveats for windows & mac

  1. Change icomment to:

    There is another difference in grab behaviour on Windows. The grab command was changed there so that if one toplevel window in an application has a (non-global) grab then it is not possible to deiconify or raise another toplevel window from the same application in front of it.

    I think that the change was ill-advised. It's caused more problems than it solved; it's introduced an unexpected and unsafe linkage between the grab state and toplevel deiconify and raise; and it's increased inconsistency in behaviour between Windows & Unix. See tickets [2896605], [3414089], [3009450]. However, if we're stuck with this behaviour on Windows then at least it should be documented in the grab page.
