Bug report #5118
Floating controls in the print composer do not close (and continue to operate) when you close the composer

In the print composer in master, I have detached the the "Item properties" and "composition" panes, so they are now floating. When I close the print composer they remain open, and if I make changes in them, when I reopen the print layout the changes have been applied. Funky ;)

This seems to be a bug with Qt and having more then one QMainWindow with dock widgets. I did find a bug report one day but can't seem to find it now.
I was thinking that maybe to disable floating dock widgets in the composer for now until a better fix can be found. Random floating dock widgets would be confusing to users.
