The middle part of the log message may waste more mental bandwidth
of readers than it is worth.  It might have gave you satisfaction to
be able to vent, but don't (the place to do so is after the three
dash lines).

I am not sure if we want all codepaths to do 64-bit math for
progress meter, but let's see what others would think.

Are these (and there are probably other instances in this patch) %lu
correct?
