Reproduced every time on fresh install of Ubuntu 2015.10 on a Thinkpad T550 with 16GB of RAM, all settings by default except a few Unity tweaks, freshly rebooted.

When transferring a 364GB file, Ubuntu becomes extremely unresponsive. Mouse very difficult to move but I managed to click Firefox&s icon, it opened after a few minutes. On the opposite, I was unable to open a terminal despite clicking its icon several times, not sure why. The copy happens nonetheless, at 100 MB/second, and after it succeeds Ubuntu becomes usable again.
