I will use this next time, at least for small files lftp works.

Sshfs does use sftp to do the actual communication with the server,
however.  Based on the debug output from sshfs it appears that the newly
created file becomes visible on the server only after the existence of
the new file gets checked, so the check fails.  On the second attempt to
do the copy, that check succeeds and the truncation and re-write
succeeds as well.  I've switched off all caching for sftp/sshfs that I
could find to no avail.

Thank you, I have now created that file.
