It's a pretty scary set of warnings.  It would be much nicer if cp said

        Warning: /media/USB_DISK does not support extended attributes;
        metadata will be lost.
instead of printing one warning per EA.  We should follow up with the
fileutils people.

Oops, my mistake.  Sorry for the wrong report on this.

I'll file a bug against Nautilus.
