This test was present but ineffective in previous releases.
It's indicating a disparity in the setgid bit
which is propagated with mkdir, but not cp --no-preserve=mode.
A quick test on ext4 on linux here shows that cp does propagate
the setgid bit, so I'd need to dig more to find the disparity.

cp uses the gnulib set_acl() functionality here,
and there are AIX specific code paths there,
so I presume this is what clears the setgid bit erroneously.
