Lightroom Classic 7.1: The Progress Bar disappears and the completion tone sounds long before the Export is complete.

When exporting images in Lr Classic with today's update the progress bar shows normally at the start then disappears long before the export is complete.  The completion sound also goes off at the same time.  When the export is actually complete, the sound goes off again.

Would like to have it perform as before.

Thanks,

Tom

That is strange. Windows or Mac?

Could you try reset the Lr prefs (press Shift+Alt/Option when Lr is launched) to see if it makes a difference?

This did not solve my problem.  The bar still disappears before the export is finished.  Here's what I have done so far, in addition to doing the reset.  I did a test export of 112 images.  I pulled up a display of the disk file on my second monitor and watched what happened as the export to disk ran.  The progress bar disappeard once all 112 files were exported to the destination folder.  At that point LR reported 77 files in the destination directory.  So, on my computer, a MAC running the latest OS version, the progress bar seems to be reading the destination directory, but LR display is running about 30% behind the OS report of the destination folder.
I rely on the progress bar as I run multiple tasks at the same time, and I'm trying not to run too many at once.  So'd I'd appreciate any advice.  Or is this a bug?  Its not a feature.
Thanks

same issue here on mac with current version of LR classic. i found out "by accident" when converting 600 RAW files to DNG and wondering while only half was converted. when i managed to keep the metadata file type selection bar locked i could see that the counting of converted DNG files still raised up. this is quite dangerous as a user might delete certain files thinking that conversion already took place and so on. is there any solution to this? macos high sierra here.
