Well, the file I downloaded was a self-extracting zip archive and the
file it contains is called Windows6.1-KB983528-x64.msu, so I'm fairly
certain it's the right one for an AMD64 system.

Sounds tricky.  The laptop is a domain member and it's not in the same
room with me so I'm running this via rdesktop.  But that would be fixable.

However, if this issue is the problem, then why is sftp fast and only scp
and rsync slow?  I can reproduce this at will, not only once in the
right order.
