While processing a model, the Status Dialog Box disappears and I it cannot be brought forward of the Model or the ArcMap Windows.  I've had this happen often and have lost complex models because it appears the only way to get back is to kill the ArcMap process.

Has anyone else had this problem?   Has anyone found a way to re-expose the hidden window or prevent this from happening.

I am running Windows 7 64bit with all current updates.
