As for the rules, I think the most I've waited for the rule processing was something like two minutes. As far as I'm concerned, the indicator resetting every once in a while is a minor bug. Especially if the rules are [a-z] type where you can plainly see the progress by the first letter. For other rules it may not be so clear but I generally calculate the time needed with a spreadsheet even before I start the attempt (old habits...) so I have a fairly accurate idea of the time left.
