Sparkle Issue with Updating Some Apps on ZFS #192

I've been running with my home directory (and most of my system) on ZFS (Zevo) for quite some time, as one of their testers. Nearly everything works - including Sparkle, with most applications I run (such as Alfred and Skim) - but with Adium it always fails, and it seems from the log (below) as though the problem is internal to Sparkle. In particular, it appears to be complaining when attempting to copy "", which is a link to "". The destination of the link has not been copied yet at the point where it complains, and I don't have sufficient information to determine what exactly is going wrong. This problem occurs on both Lion and Mountain Lion. The Sparkle update log is below:
