Version: 2.1.1 (using 4.2.4 (KDE 4.2.4), 4.2.4-6.fc11 Fedora)

When opening the Amarok cover manager (Tools -> Cover Manager), it pops up with a progress bar and a "Cancel" button. This "Cancel" button does not work. Clicking it does not cancel anything. I have to wait until the cover manager is fully loaded before I can close it.
Confirmed in git master of today.
I made a simple patch for this.
This patch doesn't work here, sorry. Pressing "Cancel" does nothing at all.
Any news on this? The "Cancel" button when loading the thumbnails still doesn't work.

Make the "cancel" button when loading thumbnails in the cover manager work.
The issue was that the not processing events in every iteration apparently made most user events simply dissapear.
The more frequent processing caused secere flickering in the actual cover view when loading the items, so as a workaround, a dummy empty view is shown untill all covers have been loaded (or the cancel button is pressed).
This has the added benefit of making cover loading significantly faster.
