Thanks for the report. I agree with your analysis. We should follow the behavior of cp and always strip off the suid/sgid bits in shutil.copy(). coreutil's cp removes the bits and doesn't handle source owner = destination owner special.

There are other bits that may need special treatment, too. I'm going to check the sources of cp.
