Appliance exporting progress bar provides misleading information.

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

Appliance exporting progress bar spends much time alternating between "A few seconds remaining." and "14715 days 1 hours remaining."

The former is very misleading, as is the latter - but the latter takes the cake for depressing. Perhaps the two should be combined, as in "Somewhere between a few seconds and 14715 days 1 hours remaining."

Thanks for the report. We should take the arithmetic mean value then.

Seriously, I'll take a look. The progress business is not always trivial.

Is this still an issue with VBox 3.2.8?

Please reopen if still relevant with a recent VirtualBox release.
