           Summary: kst needs an "i'm busy" indicator
           Product: kst
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: RedHat RPMs
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: wishlist
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: kst kde org
        ReportedBy: matt truch net

Version:           0.99-devel (using KDE KDE 3.2.1)
Installed from:    RedHat RPMs
OS:                Linux

Now that kst is (partially?) threaded, the user interface continues to run when kst is busy (ie when you click 'next page' when your data has ~1000000 points per page), which is confusing.  There should be some kind of visual indicator (busy cursor, or better, an indicator on the status bar (which normally just says "Ready")) letting one know when things are being worked on in the background.  When looking at live data, this indicator should pulse as new data arrives (and is processed).
