One at a time, yes. But when I select multiple files to be copied, (but
still 1 at a time) the same happens.

Well, first compile the 2.4.0-test1-kernel with all necessary options
(SCSI-emulation etc... see ZIP-drive MINI-HOWTO), and then copy a huge
file (like the 2.4.0-test1-sources) to a ZIP-disk. I should say that I
work with FAT16-formatted zipdisks, because it is for transfer between
my Linux-pc and a Win9x-pc. Therefor I mount it as /dev/sda4.
This should already be enough to reproduce the error.
