Version: unspecified (using KDE 4.6.0)
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.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy from/to an external hard disk.
2. Disconnect the external hard disk while copying.
Dolphin will show an error message on top of all of its windows.
Dolphin should show an error message that doesn't prevent interacting with neither the original window, nor other windows.
Thanks for the bug report. This is related to bug 212957.

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.
