Is there a way to remove nautilus file transfer dialog from unity integration?

I mean, when using unity, if you copy some files from one place to another you can see that dialog window that shows the progress, and you can minimize or even close it that nautilus will still copy the files and unity will still show the progress status on the 'home' icon. If you don't use unity (like me) and don't use gnome-shell or gnome-session-fallback too (Ubuntu Unity session but Unity plugin is disabled) and you begin copy some files the dialog appears, but if you minimize or close the window, you can't restore it anymore.

A little research led me to believe that this is because libunity, but I do not know what to do.

I appreciate any help

And you can minimize the Dialog, jsut move the cursor over the little bar inside a circle icon on the top left or right corner on the screen and magic! it'll be minimized. –  Uri Herrera Dec 24 '11 at 19:58
@UriHerrera sarcasm isn't helpful... –  Botouls Dec 24 '11 at 21:01
That sounds like a bug. Report it on launchpad.net –  Jo-Erlend Schinstad Dec 24 '11 at 21:06
meh @UriHerrera is totally right... I solved this by creating rules for the 'file operations' window. Now it can't be closed or minimized. The icon is not shown on the panel/dock, but the window keep floating on my desktop. Is the best I can do ^^ Thanks everyone! –  Botouls Dec 25 '11 at 16:21
