This is pretty useless on my system because the loss of responsiveness
is mostly caused by the disk accesses and not by cpu usage. 

I have added a usleep() into the copy loop which is executed every 3th
loop. This reduces the cutting bandwidth to about 5 MB/s on my system.

Something that limits the disk bandwidth used by cutting combined with a
cutting queue would be ideal.
