Please could the file operations window (that pops up when moving/deleting/copying etc) be changed to a standalone window. This window can then be focussed without raising the associated file browser window to the current desktop/behind the operations window. This would also mean that minimising the parent browser window would not make the file operations window disappear.
This is a minor issue for me as I use devilspie to pin and make ontop these file operation windows (as I expect to see them everywhere).
A slighlty different request - if possible, please could the act of a file operations window grabbing the focus from the parent file browser window be made configurable (on/off). Currently I can use the keyboard for everything, but this breaks down when copying deleting etc - as soon as I trigger one of these operations the child window snatches focus, and I can no longer browse, switch tabs etc until the operation completes (without using the mouse obviously).
