I found the problem. When I use scp--from computer A to computer B
only--my home isn't c:\cygwin\home\ryan, but c:\Program
File\Git\home\ryan. ??? Can anyone help me with this one?
c:\cygwin\home\ryan is my home directory on both computer A and B in
normal bash shells and also when I ssh from one to the other. Why is
scp behaving differently?
