I have experienced this issue with almost all versions of ubuntu. It happens with all types of thumb drives. I have faced same issues with all the pc's I have used. At the beginning it seems like data is getting copied with a reasonable speed but after few seconds it slows down, and progress bar even stops intermittently. In comparison to speeds on windows, it is terribly slow.


Looks like it could be any one of the following bugs 591174 541937 or 197762
