Summary0002260: Metabug: Long-running code that blocks the UI
DescriptionThere's long running code that blocks the UI in many parts of Scribus. This bug is here to identify and keep track of them. It's also a good place to point to discussion on these issues.

Blocking the UI is bad, because (a) it means there's no way to let the user cancel the long-running operation, and (b) it makes Scribus appear to have hung, to the point where we don't even redraw.
TagsNo tags attached.

Known problem areas include:

Where we might want to let the user keep on working:
- PS import
- SVG import
- PDF/PS/EPS rasterisation for pic frame (less problematic)

Where locking the UI is probably OK, but we should provide progress and cancel:
- PDF export
- Printing
- Other export

callGS(...) is one function that needs looking at.
