It doesn't just happen with the progress dialog. Once a month or so I'll hit "send" on an email, switch desktops and activate another window. I work in there awhile and then go back to check email and claws is unresponsive. I've learned by now to check the hundred or so open windows between desktop 3 and desktop 6 to find the alert (forgot an attachment, gmail sucks, etc.) I need to close before force-closing claws, but it's a hassle.

To avoid that kind of thing it would be simply awesome if claws alerts like this came from the toolbar the way programs like Pidgin do it. Then we'd always see them but they'd always be unubtrusive too.
