    Mystery of the Modeless Dialog

    I am looking at some code similar to this. I have theories as to
    why the destructor is never called. In my opinion, the dialog does go
    out of scope...the manager object should automatically delete it.
    void ShowSearchDialog(void)
      uniqe_ptr<CModeLess> m_pmodeless(new CModeLess(this)); 
    In the dialog, based on some query results certain controls are disabled.

    The next time the function is called the same controls are disabled even
    if the query did not return the state that causes the controls to be disabled

    #1 Why doesn't the destructor get called?
    #2 Why is the object hanging around?
    #3 Why does the same object appear to be
    reconnecting to the pointer on subsequent calls?

    To keep the plot moving, that's why.
