The attached snapshot shows three copies in progress. The top and bottom copies show a copy progress bar proportionate to progress, whilst the centre bar has travelled too far.

The progress bars are based on the amount of data (bytes) to copy, not on the amount of files. Unfortunately, there is a penalty for creating files and copying attributes, which results in the progress bars filling "unevenly" (ie not with perfectly constant speed). Should I leave this open to mean that the last issue I mentioned should be fixed some day?

This cannot be "fixed"; you don't know the penalty of single file operations. A single file count is certainly no solution, at least.

And while you can estimate the ETA of a file operation, progress bars shouldn't really be based on that, as they could then jump around.
