Thanks for the report.  Could you run your test case again under
'strace' and report the result for the failing case?

Try this:

  strace -e trace=file -o /tmp/cp.strace.out /tools/wdtgnu/coreutils-6.9/bin/cp 
--preserve=timestamps file /tmp/file_2

That should report useful information to understand what it is doing
under the hood.  Please send the resulting information back to the
mailing list.
