freezing UI

When I used Mandriva least (it must have been version 9.x), the draktools had a blocking UI. Each time a "background" operation was executed, the draktools seemed to freeze.

Is this fixed now? (If I remember correctly, this was implemented as a workaround for some perl-threading problem.)
