I cannot reproduce the problem.
Maybe it's an OS specific problem.
Apparently, to get around the problem in your case you should not open temporary windows in Full Screen.
By default, Preferences -> Interface -> Editors -> Temporary Windows has its components set as New Windows and not Full Screen.
