I've looked at this now. My initial idea was to add a member to
DispatchResult that would signal when we need to disconnect the dialogs,
like we do for updateBuffer, and set this whenever we do need to do
that. But it seems that we need to do that for a great majority of the
LFUNs. So then I thought I could set it by default and clear it when
that's necessary. Which would do. But another idea would be to add a
flag to LyXAction::FuncAttribs that would indicate whether we should
disconnect the dialogs after apply that LFUN. The advantage would be
that this would then be done in a central location and not spread all
over the code. Any thoughts?
