My guess would be it's a file with more than one fork
(ie. more than one data stream associated with it).

Are you copying from an NTFS partition - this error 
should only occur there.

An NT client needs a 'magic' error code to tell it that
the server doesn't support multiple data forks. I think
I put that into 2.0.2.

Hope this helps,

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
