Could not test with: 2020.1.0a23, 2020.1.14f1, 2020.2.0a1, 2020.2.0b11, 2021.1.0a1, 2021.1.0a3(script does not invoke a progress bar at all)

Script is borrowed from the DisplayProgressBar manual page of 2019.4 manual
With most progress bars(e.g. native Editor), the progress bar disappears for only a split second and then reappears when refocusing the Editor. However, for this particular script, the progress bar does not reappear unless the main Editor window is shaken around for a second or two when dragging
