Sync progress indicator

There used to have a popup box which showed progress on synching files between Macs. This was really useful as it gave helpful information – not least of which was that it showed which database was being transferred so that if there was a problem, I knew where to look.

At some point this helpful indicator stopped appearing (at least a couple of updates ago, perhaps more): now the only indication I have that sync is happening is that the date stamp will change in the preferences panel. If there’s a problem, I can’t tell which database is causing the problem (sometimes log will show this, but often nothing happens for a long time with absolutely no indication at all).

Is there a hidden setting which turns it back on? Or, if it has been removed, please could it be put back again…
