No, I am still able to reproduce the problem using 15.03. I think that there's another component that I hadn't realized before: I use multiple desktop spaces, and the re-Z-ordering appears to only happen if I am on a different desktop space and then alt-tab back to FM.
So FM is on Space 1 with 3 modal windows open (Security + Edit + New PW). I switch to an application on Space 2 (e.g. a text document with the PW I plan on using). I then attempt to switch back to FM via alt-tab, and the New PW window is at the bottom of the Z-order. Clicking the back window does not bring it to the front.
But, if I click onto the empty desktop area and the click back to the FM window, the z-order seems to reestablish itself and the New PW window comes to the top.
I am still unable to reproduce this issue. To attempt to reproduce:
1. created Test.fmp12
2. File > Manage > Security...
3. Selected Admin and Edit...
4. Selected Change... to change password
5A. Used Command + Tab to enter mail on a different desktop space
5B. Used Command + Right Arrow to move to Mail on a different desktop space
5C. Used Command + Up Arrow to use mission control to move to Mail on a different desktop space
6. Used Command + Tab to move back to FileMaker
*In every scenario my dialogs were ordered properly.
Is there something I'm missing?
Does this occur on multiple machines or just the one?
I can get it to happen with these steps:
1. Create new file
2. Enter browse mode
3. Open Security
4. Open 'Admin' account (double click)
5. Open 'Change PW' window
6. cmd-tab to other application on a different Desktop space
7. cmd-tab back to FM
Window z-order is altered and clicking the one that should be the highest doesn't bring it to the front.
Clicking on the desktop background and then back to FM will cause the windows to properly re-z-order.
I have attached a video showing my steps. It starts out demonstrating that I am on Desktop Space 3; the application I switch to is on Space 2.

I have experienced this on both Mac's and PC's
Jerry's reply indicates that it's more widespreadh - I haven't tested this on my Windows machine yet. I'll also check in with my co-workers to see what they experience.
Thank you for the additional information.
I have still been unable to reproduce with FileMaker Pro 15.0.3 in OS X 10.10, 10.11, or 10.12. I am unable to test with Desktop Spaces in Windows 10 at this time. I am going to forward this issue with your steps to reproduce to Testing and Development. I will post back here when I receive further information.
Testing and Development was able to reproduce this issue. They are aware of this limitation with spaces. There are not currently any recommended work arounds. I'll post back here if anything further comes up.
OK, thanks for the update.
It's kind of a minor problem, I know.
