Hmm interesting.  Apparently it also works to set that value to 0, 
display the popup and change it back again.

I also found this which sounds cleaner than changing a global parameter:

function ForceForegroundWindow(hWnd: THandle): BOOL;
   hCurWnd: THandle;
   hCurWnd := GetForegroundWindow;
     GetWindowThreadProcessId(hCurWnd, nil),
     GetCurrentThreadId, True);
   Result := SetForegroundWindow(hWnd);
     GetWindowThreadProcessId(hCurWnd, nil),
     GetCurrentThreadId, False);

None of this is tested of course..
