Description bill 2000-09-12 13:48:17 PDT
There is no visual indication that the restore operation is actually working 
when restoring a certificate.  This is especially problematic when restoring a 
certificate/key to a smartcard (because they're slow devices).

What makes this confusing is that while the restore is apparently happening, you 
can move the mouse around and the cursor appropriately changes from a hand 
cursor to an arrow cursor as you mouse over hyperlinks within PSM.

Steps to reproduce:
install a smartcard on your machine
go into PSM and restore certificates to the smartcard
note that while the import operation is taking place, there is no watch cursor 
or any other indication that the machine is procesing.

If you wait long enough, you DO get the "restore was successful" dialog, but it 
takes long enough that the user might think the operation failed.

Comment 9 Nelson Bolyard (seldom reads bugmail) 2004-04-05 17:12:49 PDT
Mass change "Future" target milestone to "--" on bugs that now are assigned to
nobody.  Those targets reflected the prioritization of past PSM management.
Many of these should be marked invalid or wontfix, I think.
