Hi Jannis I saw your post here and I thought to my self... Why dont you put
a visual effect or even another icon giving the feedback that the file
transer is still happening and you update the progress bar at 0.1 or even
0.5? Working like this we make the ansious people happy and dont spend
processing time with something that is not worth enough.
I might have some ideas on how to create this visual effect, if like the
idea let me know and we can discuss it.

If it is worth enoug we can start a new entry on the mailing list about
