It's just a warning, so the update has not failed.

This is in fact the weakest part of cowdancer; and cowdancer does not
really cover this case of fchown/fchmod, which means sometimes the COW

In practice, this has not been causing too much real-life problems,
and thus decided to release cowbuilder.
