I have managed to reproduce the behaviour that you are describing. And I can agree that this is a bug in the Kendo UI Window and incorrect z-index calculation. I have logged this as an issue and it will be fixed in a future build.
In the mean time I have created a jsBin
where you can see a possible workaround.
