I remember a post about a month of ago that described the bug in detail.
The problem is even more problematic with rsync. The author of the message
went on to propose a solution. Unfortunately, I don't think the person was
a programmer, so there was no actual source code patch. It doesn't seem
like anybody else had time to look into the problem. I keep meaning to, but
work always gets in the way. About the best I can do is suggest the
workaround I normally use...
ssh -T foo "tar cfz - somedirectoryorfile"|tar xvvfz -
Certainly, this is ugly, but it works without the incomplete transfer
