Fedora 30

$ rpm -qf `which cp`
coreutils-8.31-6.fc30.x86_64

basically, it's:

mount UUID=$uuid /mnt/pendrive
SECONDS=0
cp $testfile /mnt/pendrive
umount /mnt/pendrive
tempo=$SECONDS

and it copies one file only. Anyway, you can find the whole script
attached.

I will do it, but I have a doubt. Since the problem doesn't happen
every time, is it useful to give you a trace of a "fast" run? And, if
it's not, I think I should measure performance with the trace command
prefix, to identify a "slow" run to report you. Does it make sense?

Thanks,
Andrea
