Screenshot of strange progress dialog

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:

In the YaST2 printer configuration, when one is done editing a printer, a
strange dialog pops up: It has the title YaST2, and the following text:

Modifying Printer Setup

Updating configuration files...


[ OK ] [ Stop ]

The number counts down from 30; when it's done the dialog disappears.

This strikes me as a particularly strange, non-standard, and
unprofessional-looking progress dialog. Why is there a countdown timer? Why
can't there be a progress bar like every other progress dialog? And why are
there "OK" and "Stop" buttons? Is the user supposed to click OK or wait until
the countdown timer is finished? What's the difference between hitting OK and
just waiting? And what does "Stop" do? Does it cancel the operation? Nothing
in this dialog makes any sense.

Please replace this dialog with a standard progress bar, possibly with a single
"Cancel" or "Abort" button to abort the operation.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. YaST2->Printer->Edit
2. Make some change to the printer configuration
3. Click OK

Actual Results:
4. Strange-looking progress dialog appears

Expected Results:
4. Standard progress dialog should have been used
