Nautilus file operations problem

I tried to copy a file from my hard disk to a USB flash drive using drag and
drop and the nautilus file manager. When I did this a file operations
window popped up showing progress of the copy. It stopped at 245.5Mb of
278.6Mb, however, when you look at the destination file it is in fact all
there. Doing an md5sum of the source file and the destination file shows
them to be the same. I removed the destination file and tried the copy
again, and this time it stopped at 246.5Mb of 278.6Mb. If I try to unmount
the USB drive it fails with volume is busy, even though the file has been
copied over completely. If I try to force the unmount it fails with volume
busy. Eventually (after about 5 minutes) it seems to finally recognize that
the copy is complete and allows me to unmount the drive. If the file has
completed copying why does the nautilus file operation popup take a long
time before it goes away?
No matter how many times I do the copy the nautilus file operation popup
takes several minutes to report completion.
I'm running F12 with all the latest updates.
