This could be a duplicate of #351897, but it seems to be just a similar bug.

When performing slow file operations, the plasma panel (and so the system) becomes completely frozen and unresponsive.

How to reproduce:
1. Create a network share somewhere
2. Mount that share over a slow network
3. Open dolphin, try to copy a local file to that mount (sometimes just browsing the mount is enough)
4. Plasma is now frozen until the copy/file operation is done (it could take minutes)

What I would except to happen:
I would expect plasma to stay functional regardless of running background operations
