When you copy/remove lots of files, the midnight gets too slow because of
thousands of screen redraws (per a second). Terminals are slow and disc is

It would be nice to limit the redraw of the copy/remove window do an user
defined time (e.g. 200-500 ms). This could be easy to implement (and you dont
need threads or something like that - just one "if" and time measurement).

Check this out - touch 100000 files and try to delete with midnight and after
that with the "rm" command. Feel the difference?
