Would it be possible to use a separate (modal) window for the main menu 
that pops up when the menu is active?

That's not really a clean solution IMO.
The non-graphical installer has the percentage inside the menu bar and the 
messages in multiple lines (2 by default, but can be extended) below it.
IMO a similar solution would be preferable to having one single very long 
line inside the progress bar.
