Data Source Background from Layer Properties

Has anyone notice something strange on Data Source in the background ? What I am saying that in ArcGIS Desktop is that we can see to know where the Data Source came from.... but in Pro no !

Here is the screenshot ..

So when your layer is moved or have a red Exclamation Point .... and you need to know where to find...



and then you press the Set Data Source button at the upper right corner. And it opens another dialog box 


Can you see my the Question Mark drew a red circle  showing nothing and it is difficult to track where you left over and know where to find ...  Kind of strange to see that....   Is that suppose to be that way ?

I see what you mean.  I replicated this workflow in ArcMap and that app shows the original location of the "lost data source" vs a "Loading..."  Not sure if this is intended behavior in ArcGIS Pro but perhaps worth an idea on ArcGIS Ideas if it does not exist already.
