Just my luck that Centos is one of those linuxes that are problematic.

Anyway, here's the summary:
a) Connecting the Samsung Galaxy S3 by USB (fails)
b) Connecting that phone by Kies Air (fails for multiple files, no error message!)
c) Connecting that phone by AirDroid (works! Even for multiple files!)

Slow. Cumbersome. But all that matters is that files can be transferred
from the Samsung Galaxy SIII to the Centos 6 PC.
