Make a consistent progress bar for writing to USB data

Registered by Wladston Viana on 2006-11-22

When a user unplug an removable storage media from the system, it says : "writing data to storage device (name of the device)", with a bar pumping.

I was moving lots of files, and I thought that some error has occurred. But after some time, the operation completed.

I suggest a REAL progress bar, not a pumping one, that shows the percentage done and shows what file is being written.

Whiteboard

there could be a status icon on panel (like Bluetooth Applet)
which would show usb disc states:
 - mounted
 - has files to write
 - has opened files
 - writing/reading
