The same thing happens to me. I'm using the WLAN to transfer large files because with _large_ files, over time it will just die with IO error.
when I keep the transfer size down, it works fine.
Funny enough, opera also has a bug with small debian-binary files, sometimes it will not really download them and in the end the installer will choke on a 0 byte file. Downloading it again helps. Weird.

I thought about that, but I'm not much of a phone extra stuff user apart from just using it for actually making phone calls ;) (read: too lazy)

Well, you have to give the cell phone carriers the credit for having the idea of selling ringtones in the first place. Who would have thought... ;)

You mean FUSE (Filesystems in Userspace), I think?

Right at the moment I have a 770 that thinks it has 600GB of drive space, and I'm 40 miles away from the parent box. 

Yeah, mounting is a nice concept :)
Too bad GNOME (and KDE) thought inventing their own incompatible layer would be fun. sigh.

Actually I looked into adding a nice mount manager to the Nokia 770 file manager somewhen (including ability to use fusermount), but I think the source code wasn't available back then? I wonder...
