On OS X 10.11.2, when LR is running in full screen by clicking the green button in the upper-left corner of the main window, a resizable modal dialog box will automatically expand to full screen.  This is clearly undesirable and doesn't happen on Windows.

Here's a sample script that shows the problem:

local LrDialogs = import 'LrDialogs'
local LrView = import 'LrView'
local f = LrView.osFactory()
LrDialogs.presentModalDialog {
    title = "Full-Screen Bug", resizable = true,
    contents = f:static_text {title = "Hello!"}}




[This also occurs with built-in dialogs such as File > Export... See below.]

This should now be fixed as of the CC2015.6/6.6 update released today. You can find more details here: http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2016/06/lightroom-cc-2015-6-now-available.html

Also happens with Adobe's own dialogs: when permanently deleting files from a NAS, I get a message (paraphrased) "The files can not be undeleted, permanently delete?", and the dialog is unnecessarily full-screen. Having just switched from Windows to OS X this was a strange discovery.

You can open LR in full screen mode either by clicking the OS X green dot window control or by using the LR shortcut {Cmd}{F}.
Select a smart collection and right click to edit the smart collection. the Edit Smart Collection dialog opens full screen. the Windows controls in the upper left are blank (not red, yellow & green), non selectable and the window can't be resized.

I neglected to report the original LR version, but I believe it was LR CC 2015.5 (reported on 3/28, 2015.5 was released 3/16).  The problem still occurs in 2015.5.1 / OS 10.11.5.  

Interestingly, the problem happens when you click the green button in the upper-left corner, when you do Window > Enter Full Screen, but not when you do Window > Screen Mode > Full Screen.  Is there supposed to be a difference between those different ways of entering full screen?

As noted above, the problem also occurs with LR's built-in dialogs, e.g. File > Export...
