I'm using Thunar 1.0.1 and Xfce 4.6.1 on Debian testing (Squeeze) and 
have the progress bar for all file movements. As I said, it pops up in 
its own application popup window. (Is it changing from there to the 
status bar or some other location with 1.10?) I was thinking at first 
that maybe aggressive focus stealing prevention settings might cause 
that popup to be relegated to background on the desktop. But I think the 
number of different ways that Robin has stated that he uses Thunar 
without seeing the bar makes this an unlikely scenario.

If I'm not supposed to be seeing a progress bar, I wonder why I am. (And 
I believe I was seeing one with an earlier version of Xfce and Thunar, 
too, though that may be faulty old man memory.)
