"File Operations" Dialogue is not scalable in Nautilus and causes Jitter

Bug Description

On intrepid, there is a "File Operations" dialogue for each longer copy or move operation. That dialogue is not resizable. Depending on the estimated duration, its size jitters. See Screenshot. Probably upstream prob.

It is similar to the other bug I reported that the remaining download time during dist-upgrade from hardy to intrepid and from feisty to hardy could not be read in languages hitting long words in localisation

Suggested fix: make "File Operations" resizable via "grabbing" the corners/edges.

Sometimes it makes a newline, sometimes not, so the box resizes itself

Ah yes, it's DVB-S recorded german SD-TV films, shrinked to h264, moved from the mythtv recorder to the archive.

Here's maybe a better illustration of the problem.

Notice: copy operation on the array is about 25 MB/s (arry runs on different 2007 hdds, 30-35 should be normal today on hdds, 100+ on good SDDs), one kernel at 100% without stepping to the max. As one of the three disks makes about 25 MB/s each, for Raid 5 copy on the same array this is pretty OK, like copy from hdd1 to hdd2, with the xoring done without significant impact. I love Linux!

this is likely known upstream and the dialog is being worked, upstream bug is: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=518410 ; was targeted for 2.24 but is not fixed yet, will ping upstream to see what's going on there, thanks in advance.

Unmarking the diff as patch, that's not the wanted solution there

Hey, has this issue been resolved yet?
