I am copying directories from a Snow Leopard machine to a Tiger machine using
scp -r and for some reason, it appears that the final line of the target (Tiger) machine's
echo '') causes scp to hang. When commended out, it works as expected.
I've never seen this behaviour on any of my Slackware, Ubuntu, Gentoo, SuSE, Mandrake or even Apple machines. Is this part of a recent 10.6 security update?
scp worked as expected with that line until recently.
