Canceling a "job"

Ok..I like what they have done with the little info area; where
informative messages popup from, keeping you in the know. Much better
than before when the messages would pop up and then instantly disappear,
never to be seen again.That said, I think they may have gone a little
bit too far (or not far enough, depending on how you look at it).
I was uploading a large file to an FTP site today using dolphin. It used
to be that there was a dialog box that appeared showing progress and,
more relevent to this discussion, a cancel button. When I dragged my
large file from my computer pane to the FTP pane it dutifully added an
entry to the info area letting me know I had 5 more hours to wait for it
to finish uploading and even showed me a progress bar. Cool so far,
except that I had dragged the wrong file over. Try as I might, I could
not find any way to tell it to stop, short of logging off and back on.
I am thinking that a little red X on that info/progress-meter would go a
long way towards making me happier than I already am with Karmic.
