Please ignore my last message.

I've written a test for your error, and it turns out that the error is caught and just raised at the end of the process, meaning that everything else was copied before you get the exception.

So shutil.copytree didn't fail.

Now, the behavior is a little bit hard for this case, so I am going to add an option to ignore errors when a dangling symlink is found.
