USB memory stick copy causes server to freeze

Description of problem:
I presume the problem is with the USB utils. If I put a "memory stick" into
the USB port, mount it and copy a file to it the server freezes. It loses all
contact with the network and keyboard, etc. The only solution is to reboot
the server. *** This only seems to happen with memory sticks bigger than
16MB. If I use a 16MB memory stick it works with no problem. ***
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
libusb-0.1.5-3 and usbutils-0.9-5
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert USB memory stick and mount it
2. Copy a file > 20MB to it
3. Server Freezes
Actual Results: Server Freezes and will not respond via keyboard or network.
Expected Results: File should have been copied to memory stick.
The server is an IBM netfinity with 4 x 1.7Ghz CPU's and 8GB RAM.
It is running a +/- 40GB Oracle database.
