No, the step that created the zip completely runs on the harddisk. The 
step that fails simply does a copy.

Is anyone able to reproduce the error? i.e.
1- take a file that's more than 50% of the target CD-RW in size
2- do a simple shutil.copy(from, to)
and get the same result?

I'd just like to know if it is my PC only, or a more general issue. Just 
to keep the developers from chasing phantoms.

If it doesn't make any difference to your well-being, then don't. That's 
what Buddha said ;-)
