This is becuase there is not an MS Windows compatibility section in the
ACL code.  I assume that the Win copy is using the Posix code, and that
requires that the copied ACL data has an access bit set that is in the
range of 0-7.  To make this work, someone will need to understand how MS
Windows ACLs differ from Posix ACLs and work out some compatibility
