I don't know exactly if and how it could be done (or not), especially at 
runtime, but you must be warned that in all cases (topmost or not), the 
main log window loses its focus (and Win-Test ignores further key 
presses) once the window is deactivated (ie another application window 
is activated by clicking in it).

In these conditions, I'm not sure it helps much to have Win-Test as a 
"topmost" window. The only advantage (?) is to always see it entirely, 
and _always_ cover the other apps !

Could you please elaborate on that ?
