Stop remote tree browser jumping while retrieving file lists

When a folder is chosen to download from a remote repository, via drag and drop for example, the remote directory tree browser expands each folder individually. This overrides any user actions, and renders the remote directory tree browser effectively inoperable until all files and sub-folders have been located.
Although I can see the point in showing the user the files that are going to be downloaded, often these flash past too fast to see. As the browser is in-essence a user interface, I believe it makes sense to keep it usable by the user during this time.
A feature to prevent this behaviour, effectively performing the retrieval of directory listings and filling the transfer queue in the background, would allow a user to continue browsing the remote repository for other files.
Ideally, the user's browsing of the remote directory tree would also take priority over any automated/queued retrievals.
