Yes, the new version has fixed it.
The previous version did play nicely with other tasks in the progress/status bar, for example when checking podcasts, the progress bar would show the podcast progress and the section for eCustom progress, but as I said it showed the eCustom progress all the time instead of "going away" when nothing was happening, see screenshot below...
As for the PS, I don't think you can upload files. I think most people use their own webspace (that's how I've done the screenshots I've included) or something like mediafire.com
Thanks for the quick fix!
