modal setting on dialog causes slow input on large pages

Reported by: fontzter Owned by: scottgonzalez

Component: ui.dialog Version: 1.5.2
Keywords: modal input slow Cc:

To demonstrate I have pasted

code here:

If you run this code, you will see that the modal flag make typing in

a textarea (inside a dialog) very slow when modal is true.

Richard's analysis:

I see what the problem is. The modal plugin is binding key and mouse events

to all links and inputs, to cancel them (to enforce the modal). It seems

it's doing this even for the inputs in the dialog (as your test case

demonstrates). I'm not 100% sure, but I think we could safely filter those
