awt.PrinterJob.pageDialog not being nice  RSS feed

Using awt.print.PrinterJob.pageDialog() from a JInternalFrame is problematic in two ways:
1. When pressing ESC to close the pageDialog, the keypress is not consumed by it, and is caught by my application, which thinks that it needs to close the window that was currently open (when the pageDialog wasn't there, this is the desired behavior).
2. It acts "sort of" modal, in that I can click back into the application, but the application is then non-responsive (until the pageDialog is closed)
I'd very much appreciate some advice!
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
