This is something I also often get when I don't use xattr support, and build on Linux. It could be that it only happens with -j2 (or higher), but I'm not sure about it.

I get the same, and never build on Linux using the -j option. Should be related to xattr, then. I don't use either. Well, AFAICT :-).

Could this be caused by one or more of the OptionalPackages? Or perhaps when the ssh keys are made? Just a thought.

Replying to scottmc:

I have never seen this. Since I only build with xattr support, I'm pretty sure it's indeed related to using the no-xattr attribute emulation. Since this method is officially discouraged, I'm lowering the ticket priority. Moreover I'm urging Sikosis to adjust the build factory -- official builds must not use the no-xattr attribute emulation.

Interestingly I just saw this problem here as well, and I am using xattr. The only folder I've noticed it for though is one that's unzipped from a downloaded package rather than generated in the buildsys, which definitely didn't have that problem in the past (the zip hasn't changed in months).

Scratch that, sorry for the noise. Somehow HAIKU_HOST_USE_XATTR was disabled in my BuildConfig, probably an accident when reconfiguring updated build tools.

The build factory at the time did not use xattr support. Duplicate of #3910
