[OE-core] OSError: [Errno 7] Argument list too long in sstate_install

When building bigger world-image I always get this error from
populate_lic. There is debug output to show what copytree/Popen/execute_child 
was calling and it looks OK to me.

Could it be caused by pseudo or something like that? do_populate_lic works fine in other recipes.

Running the same cmdline in shell works fine and running it from small .py file also works fine:
$ PYTHONPATH="openembedded-core/meta/lib/:bitbake/lib:bitbake/lib/bb" ./copytree.test.py

dst='/home/jenkins/oe/shr-core-branches/shr-core/tmp-eglibc/deploy/licenses'
oe.path.copytree(src, dst)

src has only few files, dst has a lot of directories:
