I agree this is unfortunate, and we should fix it. It requires a pretty major overhaul of the code though (since currently the events we aggregate don't actually take into account *which* files are being uploaded, except for the first one. Changing this is not feasible without the risk of introducing more serious regressions.

Would not changing the wording of the message be enough? Dropping the mention of a particular file and instead saying something like "you are now synced to Ubuntu One"?

That's a much simpler solution, yes, though we lose some information. (It can be useful for the user to know how many files were synchronized, though not so much if we lie about the number ;) I intend to discuss this at UDS-O in the session for this blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/desktop-o-ubuntuone-improve-unity-integration

I will update the bug with any conclusions reached there.
