Lightroom: A rendering/processing completion alert for large files

The Nikon D800 produces very large files,
Within Lightroom, the develop module builds a 1:1 render but takes a while, and there seems to be one last little push to completion even after the 'loading' warning goes away. I have occasionally skipped over an image that wasn't tack sharp only to find the processing wasn't really complete.

A lit icon, or optionally a chime would be helpful to me to know when LR was done processing the image.

Another situation with the same symptom is applying Lightroom develop presets, especially for similar presets, it isn't clear when the preset has been applied or not because it might take 10 seconds, the alert would be the final arbiter for determining whether to keep the preset or move to next.

Of course Photoshop, even CS6 can get bogged down, I have waited as long as 45 minutes for processing, in which case I'm looking for coffee in the meantime. That is an instance where an optional completion chime would be welcome.
