Hmm ... it's definitely hard to picture what your after without the
details, so it would be helpful to see the code.  But there *is* a
subtlety to Shale's dialog support that might or might not help ...
you can reuse the same JSP page (and its backing bean) in more than
one <dialog> if you want -- you do not *have* to resort to subdialogs
for reuse.  Does that help?
