"Preallocate space" option interferes with copy speed calculation

When the "Preallocate space" option is enabled, copy speed calculation takes into account the time it takes to preallocate the file. For very large files and freshly mounted ext2/3/4 filesystems it can take quite a serious amount of time (up to several minutes) to actually preallocate the file, thus copy speed information becomes incorrect.

Please, discard the time it takes to preallocate the file.

One more request.

It would be nice if a preallocate routine had a GUI representation, i.e. in the speed bar it showed:

                 [        wait, preallocating space ...       ]
