The copy "Sync in progress..." and the activity indicator is missing from the Nautilus plug-in.

See step 4 of use case 2.9 in the file sync spec for a description of desired functionality

Acceptance test failed. In 1.3.6-0ubuntu1 the spinner shows up as expected. The copy "Sync in progress..." should show next to "Ubuntu One" until the folder is completely synchronized. Right now the spinner goes and the "Sync in progress..." text shows until the UDF is created and then "folder synchronized" is displayed. This is confusing to the user as it gives the impression that synchronization is complete even though files are still synchronizing. See attached screen shot.

Since the synchronization can take a long time, we discussed about just using the emblems for showing file syncing progress. That's why the wording 'folder synchronized' is wrong, since it should just talk about 'folder is now a UDF' rather than being synchronized.

If we just show the spinner and the 'sync in progress' string until all files are synchronized, it might be there for a very long time, and give the impression that it doesn't work at all.
