This bug is due to the setup of the progress dialog being performed as part of the class initialisation. The dialog then receives no setValue signals for its default timeout (4 seconds) so it thinks the process is slow and shows the dialog.

My patch moves the setup of the progress dialog to the install method so doesn't get called until the user clicks the "Make Startup Disk..." button.

The attachment "Move the KDE front end progress dialog setup to the install method" seems to be a patch. If it isn't, please remove the "patch" flag from the attachment, remove the "patch" tag, and if you are a member of the ~ubuntu-reviewers, unsubscribe the team.

There is a patch at comment #6 that I believe squashes this bug

@Paul there sure is, thank you very much! It applies cleanly and I've tested it works. My intent is to get that fix in all the way back to Xenial.
