I agree that a progress indicator of some type should be super-imposed
on the icon.  Perhaps instead of a bar over the icon, it could be a
circular widget added as a file-emblem?  This would prevent the
indicator from completely obscuring the icon, while still being in a
place users expect to see "extra" file-related emblems pop-up.  The
circle could start empty and gradually shade itself in clockwise as the
file operation progresses.  Just a thought,
