Photoshop: Save for web fail - Save Optimized As dialog never appears

Quite often, when editing a PNG file and then chosing Save for Web, the Save for Web dialog appears and all options can be set correctly. When I press "Save...", the Save Optimized As dialog never appears.
Instead, the "Save..." button in the Save for Web dialog goes gray and no further action can be taken. The only solution is to CTRL+ALT+DELETE and force shut down. This is totally intermittent, but often happens when multiple documents are open.

You have 2 displays connected - and it really sounds like the OS save dialog is showing, but might be off on another display.

No definitely not. Even if Photoshop is the only application running, the missing dialog is nowhere to be seen. Also, control-tabbing/minimizing etc, doesn't uncover it! Perhaps making the dialog model would solve it?

OK. It looks like everything is in it's correct place.

I wonder if the window is showing up out of order? (e.g. the Save Optimized As dialog is behind another window)

If you get in this state, if you hit esc does the "Save..." button come back to life? or can you ctrl/alt tab to another app and back to sort the window order out?

Sadly no keys cause a response. ESC doesn't stimulate a response, and I cannot even close down the Save As dialog.
