I found that thread also.

Size is smaller than that. After sending the e-mail I tested and if 
copying size was small enough it seemingly succeeded. I was planning to 
use strace, but the system was needed for use and I had to resort 
attaching direct disk on the system. This isn't optimal as it is a test 
system for bigger one. Another thing to try would be probably to tie the 
virtual bridge to physical interface on the computer.

Unfortunately I can't test the problem at the moment before I find 
another system to replicate the setup.
