my bad: forgot the snippet I mentioned in the previous post:

        lookup("chmod")(dst, mode, follow_symlinks=follow)
    except NotImplementedError:
        # if we got a NotImplementedError, it's because
        #   * follow_symlinks=False,
        #   * lchown() is unavailable, and
        #   * either
        #       * fchownat() is unavailable or
        #       * fchownat() doesn't implement AT_SYMLINK_NOFOLLOW.
        #         (it returned ENOSUP.)
        # therefore we're out of options--we simply cannot chown the
        # symlink.  give up, suppress the error.
        # (which is what shutil always did in this circumstance.)
