WindowManager.Show with custom windows... missing an Owner (WPF)

There seem to be an omission in setting the Owner of the window when calling Show on the WindowManager when the ViewModel uses a defined view of a custom window type. I see in the code that the Owner will be set when a new Window is created or if ShowDialog is called and an owner is found (all in the EnsureWindow method of the WIndowManager class).

I can work around this by setting the owner manually but I think that should be handled in the WindowManager... any thoughts?
