I have only experienced this once (with Thing 1.29), but when I tried to
send Frank a more detailed bug-report I couldn't reproduce it. cp, Thing,
Kobold etc. all copied 160Mb between two VFAT-partitions without problems.

It definitely happened once, so there is something going on, but atleast
for me it occurs very seldom (i.e. only once). Btw. it can be a conflict
between all the caches (HD-Driver, MiNT, Thing) I'm currently using, I'll
have a look at it when I return from my vacation.
