Having the file indexing occur in the background is very nice, and removes a major complaint about intellij vs eclipse.
But still there are lots of other progress dialogs which pop up for misc. file operations. I am wondering if these too could happen in the background?
Here are some of the ones I see. I get some of these when I do a clean compilation of my project; Others pop up if I do a VCS bringover with alot of updated/new files.
