I rented a DVD from Blockbusters today, and on the box somebody had written "3.142 stars out of 5".

I think it may be a pirated copy!

Comedy is no excuse for poor rounding. nono
Ah but was it poor rounding, or accurate to 3 decimal places?

There was a young fellow named Fisk
Who fenced most exceedingly brisk.
So fast was his action
The Fitzgerald contraction
Reduced his rapier to a disc.

(I do, tragically, have a vague idea as to why it the copying time changes)
I thought it was because it bases it's time estimate on the number of files left vs. number copied, whereas it would be more accurate if it measured on file size, not number? Am I close?
Nope. The main problem is that other applications and services require access to the hard drive and memory at the same time. There is no mechanism for predict the amount of access these other things require.
The main problem is that it bases the estimated time on the current speed, leading to wild spikes, rather than basing it on the speed over the last few minutes/transfer so far which would smooth it out significantly.
yes

Instead of taking average transfer speed, which would take a while to "stabilize", it takes the current transfer speed, which could jump up and down every couple of seconds.

They fixed this for a big part in Win 7, it's much less "twitchy" in 7 ime.
I use this: http://www.codesector.com/teracopy.php

It's brilliant, and absolute blows the built-in Windows file copy into the weeds. Has pause and resume functions as well, and is far more accurate on transfer times. It also offers a number of features if one file is corrupted, eg. skip and continue with the rest (rather than aborting the entire operation like Windows does). I put it on all the machines I use.
