That's not relevant, that is the data fork of the file. The file has  
some non-posix attributes (such as the attribute that gets set when  
you set the 'Locked' flag in the 'Get Info' screen info the Finder),  
or a resource fork (maybe it has a custom Icon).

I can't tell which without actually seeing the data. Feel free to  
sent me the output of sdist on the mac and I'll have a look.
