thanks all. this seemed to work:

                import os
                stat = os.stat(str(newFiles[index]))
                size1 = stat.st_size
                pygame.time.wait(100)
                stat = os.stat(str(newFiles[index]))
                size2 = stat.st_size
                while size2 > size1:
                    size1 = size2
                    pygame.time.wait(500)
                    stat = os.stat(str(newFiles[index]))
                    size2 = stat.st_size
                # procede to load complete file

my delay is so long because somehow pygame (or file-writing) runs
relatively slow on maemo/nokia770. even a delay of 400 milliseconds was
too quick to accommodate the slothly rate of an incoming file.
