Rock on, that's the type of info that makes this a bit easier to work out.
I just gave this a shot in Kubuntu, openSUSE, and Arch, all the latest. I
do notice a bit of jaggy'ness with all 3 using the kdialog/qdbus calls you
listed. It is hard to tell if it is the shading of the animation or what,
it happens so fast :)

I am going to check out dolphin/konqi on all of them while transferring
some files.
