It's possible, I suppose. There doesn't seem to be anything suspicious
in /etc/sshd_config, and it doesn't change when I install/uninstall
msysgit. Should I look somewhere else?

Same thing: scp copies to the wrong place.

Keep in mind that this msysgit installation that's causing problems is
*not* on the computer where I'm running scp. It's on the "remote"
computer that I'm trying to access via scp. i.e. I'm running scp on
computer A and the git installation is on computer B.
