Konqueror gets stuck when transferring files

Often when I copy / move files between computers I find that Konqueror
get 'stuck' and the copy / move fails in the middle. The file transfer
dialog litteraly says "stuck" and no more files move. I have found
this to be the case no matter which machines I am using, or which
Kubuntu versions, for a few years. I do not know if this is a Kubuntu
or more general Ubuntu issue as I've only used Kubuntu.

When the issue crops up, how can I determine the cause? Today I am
trying to move 30+ GB from a Kubuntu 8.04 (KDE 3.5.10) laptop to a
Kubuntu 8.10 (KDE 4.1) desktop. Each time I try the move gets stuck on
a different file, sometimes earlier and sometime later. The issue is
reproducable, and is not confined to the machines or Kubuntu versions
currently in use.
