Mac OSX File-Copy: it is actually possible!

Update on the Mac OSX Copying: after 2 days, I'm (already...) able to copy a file on a Mac in all the circumstance described earlier. You need the developer tools though. So there are three ways to copy a file, and only one works. (If you need it: /Developer/Tools/CpMac is what cp should have been. Why it doesn't simple replace cp is beyond me however...)

And if anyone ever needs to set read-only etc. from the tcsh, you can use the standard chflags or there is something in developer tools as well (SetFile I believe).
