This is most likely a bug/lacking feature in QT's implementation. AFAIK we cannot do custom UI for these parts ourselves (yet).

We'll see if this gets sorted automagically with 5.8 upgrade.

It seems to work OK in qemux86 now. Need to verify on actual target device.

works ok on TP and Nexus 4, abeit taking over the full screen, rather than an appropriately sized dialog
