No - copy() is called for copies to and from file:/, when the slave supports it.
This depends on 
in the slave's .protocol file

But before using copy(), let's debug the put() case...

Nothing. When FileCopyJob uses a get and put job, the progress info depends
on the get. Which makes this problem even more surprising...
Especially surprising since get() in emits processedSize once more
right before the end, with the file's size.... I think you're missing something,
SimpleJob::slotProcessedSize() is surely called more than once.

Is the file fully copied?
Check if FileCopyJob::setSourceSize64() is called with the right value?
[If not, the stat() is the problem. But then again, this is on the file:/ side....]

BTW KioFonts.cpp:947 has if(a) if(b) {..} else {...} , a bit unclear, better use
braces in the toplevel if....
