You can't do a copy like that, because Members has changed from a Large 
Plone Folder in 2.0.5 to an ATBTreeFolder in 2.1.2.

It needs be converted first.

One way to do this would be to upgrade the site you're copying from, 
from 2.0.5 to 2.1.2 first.

Or export the Members data in the 2.0.5 to a zexp file. Import that to 
the 2.1.2 site then I believe you'd have to run type_migration from the 
portal_atct tool. But thats a fiddly way to do it.  I'd say the first 
way is easier.

Hope that helps,
