processEvents() does not guarantee it will be fully painted either. The dialog 
may be covered by another window and made visible only after you started your 
heavy treatment. You'd have to periodically call processEvents() to ensure it 
gets repainted when necessary.

But it does look like this a regression.

The plan is to rapidly release 5.3.1 with the pending fixes from the last two 
months, plus maybe this fix.
