I don't know enough about scp to know if I'm on track here or not,
but: Do you run ZoneAlarm on your windows box?

The reason I ask is that I get problems with wget and ZoneAlarm
when downloading files over about 1.5Mb in size.  The
end-of-connection seems to get lost and wget hangs at the end of
file (which has all been downloaded) until wget times out (I tend
to re-configure the timeout to something a little less than wget's
default 15 minutes for this reason).

Does that sound something like what you are seeing?
