I've successfully used the Scheduler. scheduleDeferred() method to show progress indicators. Launching such a thing shouldn't be done directly by the thread which is handling an event ie. Your code which is called once the page has loaded and which fires off the async RPC request.
Note that I can't speak to the suitability of my approach in the context of a GWTP application as it has been some time since I looked at that framework.
