IIRC, this problem sometimes pops up on images built with a host that has 
no xattr support enabled. Or insufficient xattrs support like those on ext3 
volumes. Mostly, cleaning out the generated/attributes folder fixes this, 
but I am not sure. Sikosis could say if his build server has xattr support 
or not.
