[New-bugs-announce] [issue24163] shutil.copystat pukes when attribute security.selinux is present

New submission from Spencer Stirling:
Using shutil.copytree to copy a directory tree. The source dir lives on a Windows 7 host, however is being accessed from inside a VirtualBox VM as a "shared folder" (using vagrant to manage this whole thing).
The destination directory is just a regular linux directory inside the VM. The guest OS is CentOS 5.
shutil.copystat dies on this copy. I have tracked the problem down to line 154 in shutil.py:
os.setxattr(dst, name, value, follow_symlinks=follow_symlinks)
The issue is that the src directory apparently defines the attribute security.selinux, however setxattr doesn't see this attribute in the destination and throws an exception.
