Have you looked to see if anyone has filed it as a bug?  Relying on 
someone else filing a bug, or the devs fixing it just by accident, isn't a 
good way to get a bug fixed. =:^)

(FWIW, most copies large enough to worry about canceling, I do here in 
sysadmin mode, not user mode.  As such, I use sysadmin tools for the task, 
command-line or curses based, like mc, not X/kde based, as a sysadmin task 
may very well be fixing a broken X or kde so it works again, in which case 
X/kde based tools don't work so well!  Thus I knew nothing about this bug 
until I saw it posted.  If the developers responsible for that part of KDE 
similarly don't often have reason to cancel file operations, the bug could 
exist for quite some time without them even knowing about it.  Thus my 
point about checking for a bug, and filing one if necessary.)
