Ah, I see your point. It would defeat a little bit the "show ALL network operations
in on window" idea, if a long stat would pop up its own dialog though... So maybe
it's better to make the icon appear in such a case, after all - we need a way for
the user to cancel it, so it has to be either progress window or icon for the listview,
we can't just hide the whole thing.

Yes - but once it's there, it remains there :)
