So, I've been trying to use the ShowProgressDialog snippet do perform some long-running tasks, and no matter what I do, the progressbar is going crazy.  It simply doesn't update as it is supposed to.  Is there a way to force a refresh after each step, offeset or set_message.  I'm able to change the messages and description ok while it's running, it's just the progressbar that's failing to update.
