Which "cp" did you use?  The "cp" from within parted, like this:

        (parted) cp A B
                where A and B are partition numbers

to copy from partition A to partition B?

Or, the shell command:

        # cp -r / /somewhere-else

If you are talking about the first case... then it's a bug.  If the
later, then that's how cp(1) always works!  (And you've probably
got a bit confused, and should be using the first one...)
