revCopyFile broken on OS X?

I can't speak to revCopyFile, but on OS X there is a shell command for 
copying files with resource fork intact. If that's not what revCopyFile 
is using, you could try it:

get shell("ditto -rsrcFork 
"&quote&sourcePath&quote&&quote&destPath&quote)

You might try it out first in Terminal.app if you haven't used shell() 
before. For more information about ditto, type "man ditto" into 
Terminal.app.

If that's what revCopyFile uses already, maybe it's a remote volume / 
server problem?
