After reading that page, I stumbled over 'Improve Responsiveness of File 
Operations'. The paragraph talks about the deletion/copy/move, but I 
noticed that thunar became less responsive for the copy/move/whatever 
dialog too (progress information/time estimation). If you're shoving 
files over a slow net connection, thunar freezes up sometimes which is 
especially bad when it's running as a daemon. Are there any plans to 
restore the responsiveness for these things too?

I'm really missing the almost-instant responsiveness of the time 
estimation dialog of pre-gvfs-thunar, now it only updates every few 
seconds if everything goes well.
