Description

It seems that "Preserve attributes" are not correctly preserved for softlinks in directory strucure while copying it.
Eg copying the tree as a root let the soft links owner set to root while normal files obtain correct (ie original) owner and group set.

this duplicate resolution seems bogus.

for file permissions, this is a cantfix-bacause-pointless - chmod(1) and chmod(2) are pretty explicit about that.

for the file ownership, lchown(2) needs to be used on symlinks.
