 copy to Documents fails on Sugar 100 (AU build).

 the problem is that the ioctl for set the hidden attributes for:

 /home/olpc/Documents/.Sugar-Metadata is "Inappropriate".

 Not sure when this problem crept in (when we switched to multiselect?) or
 if it is also applicable to other file systems. The obvious workaround is
 to no set the hidden attribute on the GNU/Linux file system where it is
 not needed. Will prepare a patch.
