Zone.Identifier:$Data appears on copy from XP local file to shared folder (ext3)

Description

When I copy a file from a local NTFS filesystem to a shared folder with underlying ext3fs, sometimes additionally to the file a second file with the appendix ":Zone.Identifier:$Data" is created. The content is useless, something like

[ZoneTransfer] ZoneId=3

I`ve found the same problem myself. but with ver VirtualBox 2.1.0 Sometimes it`not possible to copy the files back as windows complain that the file is too long

Even though I followed the advice in a forum thread ( http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=4814&start=0&sid=4619e20fc3e88c9fcfc34fe225a91b49), the zone identifier files are still created.

Is it related to shared folders?
