--- Comment #2 from Thomas Eschenbacher <Thomas.Eschenbacher at gmx.de> ---
Hello Gilles,

I tried 3.5.0 and I must say that the progress bar really is a big improvement!

Now it is up to the user to have some "discipline" and wait with further
actions until all operations are finished.

Another improvement would be to prevent images which are processed somewhere
later, in some background operations, from being used in some other operations.
For example:

- create an empty album A
- create an album B and fill it with ~500 images
- select all of them
- trigger some long operation, e.g. "rotate left"
- drag&drop them into album A

=> some images remained in B, preview broken, duplicates are in A

IMHO it could be a good idea to give all images that are queued for processing
some kind of "blocked" state (like an "exclusive lock") to prevent things like
these from happening...
