1. Can you move this progress bar banner around?
2. Can you still use the main (VM Selector) window while this is 
happening? E.g., open the File->Preferences dialog.

Anyway, please try to change the Qt theme (style) to see if that helps.

P.S. When posting the stack trace, it makes sense to do it for all 
threads in all relevant processes. Yes, it's a bit of work, but VBox is
