#2059 closed defect (fixed)

Copying files blocks the journal

Reported by: bernie Owned by: alsroot
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified
Component: Sugar Version: Git as of bugdate
Severity: Unspecified Keywords:
Cc: aa, sascha_silbe Distribution/OS: Unspecified
Bug Status: Unconfirmed


If you drag & drop a large file on a removable device, the journal UI will freeze until the copy is finished, with the dragged object still visible on top of the window.

The journal UI should perform this operation asynchronously, or perhaps put on a modal progress bar, like when the volume is being scanned. In the latter case, to minimize flashing, the progress bar should appear only after 1-2 seconds.

The data store already has code for async copying that could be reused. No modal stuff, please. The Journal isn't a Windows 95 Explorer (which did exactly that, and was a PITA). Actually it would be even worse: There's no way to run multiple instances of the Journal (as was possible with the Explorer).
