Description OsamaK 2011-04-02 16:33:07 UTC
Version:           unspecified (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

On copying errors, Dolphin shows Information dialogues that are on top of all of its windows. This can prevent fixing the error.

When I was copying some large files, my external drive was disconnected and I had to remount it using the terminal because Dolphin was busy telling me it couldn't copy one file.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy from/to an external hard disk.
2. Disconnect the external hard disk while copying.

Actual Results:  
Dolphin will show an error message on top of all of its windows.

Expected Results:  
Dolphin should show an error message that doesn't prevent interacting with neither the original window, nor other windows.

Let each DolphinMainWindow run in a custom process

A possible crash in one Dolphin window should not result in crashing
other Dolphin windows. Beside this it also prevents issues with
modal dialogs or notifications.
