I hope this is the right list to report this problem. Please advise if 
there's a more suitable list / forum.

Problem: When using scp in e.g. a cygwin bash shell window to copy a 
file to a USB gadget over usbnet (i.e. via ethernet/RNDIS), the copy 
works, but then the RNDIS connection dies and requires a reboot (I have 
found no means to recover / repair the RNDIS connection).

I was happy to regard this as solely a Windows problem until I tried the 
same thing using the command line (scripting) interface of WinSCP (v3) 
and had nary a problem with it.

Windows device: Linux USB Ethernet/RNDIS Gadget
The actual Linux device is a gumstix using the gumstix linux distro (ssh 
supplied by dropbear) (for the record).

I've attached an (anonymized) cygcheck output in case it helps any.
