Perhaps it would be better to provide the user with info on what's going 
on instead of adding timed bars? Or let the animation be trigged by a 
change in the real progress. Stall = animation is stalled, Live progress 
= live animation. Or something like that.

I'm afraid the progress bar idea is going to be imprecise and will 
perhaps take to many "hacks" to get implemented?

Just my .2 cents
