you should not be using -E on 2.6.9 (or earlier I suppose) with
10.4.8. Upgrade to 10.4.9 (vanilla or with the latest security
update, as there was a security update which regressed LibC).
Otherwise -E will set corrupt unix permissions of files with
resources and crash on files with both resources and acls.
