Kill alll your nautilus processes, then run this from a shell

"strace -tt -o natuilus.trace nautilus --no-desktop /soure/of/file /floppy"
(where /source/of/file is the directory you're copying the file from and 
/floppy is mounted).

Then wait 10 seconds after the windows come up and do the copy. When it 
has failed, press ctrl-c in the shell to terminate nautilus and send me a 
gzipped copy of nautilus.trace.

Unmounting from nautilus didn't work? Then that is a bug.
