Hm. That just means that the file will change after being copied.
In itself not a problem (Note that there are other, stronger concepts
of busy. An open file for write can be opened for read/write by
another process, can be deleted, yadda, yadda. It can be definitely
copied. Less civilised operating systems lock files when opened for
write, but not the Unixoids).
