Glad to hear that!

Oopps! Yeah, it's actually a quite annoying bug I could reproduce easily
here. Now working on that...

It seems it's all the same thing: looks like frogr tries to show the
dialog because it is actually fetching tags in the background (no matter
if the tags autocompletion feature is enabled or disabled) and showing
the progress dialog when it shouldn't.

Perhaps, I should make it so frogr didn't even try to fetch the tags
list if the tags autocompletion feature is switched off, so we would be
saving the extra network data transfer due to the list of tags. And if
at some time you happen to enable the tags autocompletion feature, then
frogr will at that moment download the list of tags.

At the moment, I made it the other way around because I thought it
wouldn't be a big deal to download the list of tags in the background
anyway, but seeing that you cancelled the dialog after 5 minutes perhaps
it is not worth it and it would be better not to download the tags when
autocompletion is off.

What do you think?

Thanks for the awesome feedback.
