You only have to "believe" for ten seconds. I think somebody has been 
trying to copy ms dodgyness, in only updating the dialog every ten 
seconds. Surely an "interrupt" once a second to update such a dialog on 
any PC made in the last 15 years shouldn't slow down the system too much ?

I would like to see it fixed, but it's perhaps a gnome feature.
