Using shutil.copytree to copy a directory tree.  The source dir lives on a Windows 7 host, however is being accessed from inside a VirtualBox VM as a "shared folder" (using vagrant to manage this whole thing).

The destination directory is just a regular linux directory inside the VM.  The guest OS is CentOS 5.

shutil.copystat dies on this copy.  I have tracked the problem down to line 154 in shutil.py:

os.setxattr(dst, name, value, follow_symlinks=follow_symlinks)

The issue is that the src directory apparently defines the attribute security.selinux, however setxattr doesn't see this attribute in the destination and throws an exception.
