I experienced this very same thing last night when testing the 2.2.5
install from my vmware workstation running XP as well. I can verify
that small files were fine but when I tried to copy multi meg files to
my home share I too received the same error. I would be interested to
know what is causing it as well though at the moment I am not all that
fussed..just thought I'd throw in my $.02AUD :)
