copy will only wait if it still expects data to be transmitted.
Maybe the web server cancels sending data when a specific amount of
bytes of a specific file has been sent even if the file is not sent complete
I experienced this several times when downloading files via a web
browser. ALways with the same files.
Imagine the web server requests the data to be sent from another web
server and gets a timeout while downloading. Then it will stop transmitting
to your client , too.
