System gurus under heavy load

During a large copy between drives - copying the whole source tree to a flash stick - the system periodically gurus for periods of 30 seconds, during which time the gui interface is non-responsive. Hard disk activity stops, CPU activity is low and there appears to be nothing happening. I have turned off the virtual memory, which was causing disk thrashing and making the system CPU-bound, so this isn't the cause.
