(No need to CC the replies to me, I read the list)

But I am not nowhere near using 4GB... Files are around 700MB each, and 
one of the tried USB sticks is only 2GB big, so I would guess that
doesn't apply? - and as I said, it works just fine when doing the same
thing in a terminal.

"Copying" works just fine in both terminal and Thunar, but when
unmounting the device (I guess its at this point the files are actually
written to the device), the action times out (and the resulting
files are not properly readable) when using Thunar, but not when using
the terminal.
