"error making symbolic link" when restoring

I managed to hose my system, and I had a sparsebundle backup of the system before hosing.

I booted from another partition, mounted the sparsebundle, and started to copy the system from the sparsebundle to another drive. Each time SD stops with an error saying that it couldn't create a symbolic link. The end of the error line is always "pico ->"

This happens at different times each time in the restore, so it is not stumbling on the same thing each time, which is interesting.

Any ideas on how to overcome this? If it's helpful, I can send the entire log.

FWIW, I'm running 10.8.2 and am booted into 10.8.2 when I do the restore.
