scp doesn't escape all shell special characters in filenames, e.g. the open
bracket character in this example:

# scp
'greenrd at hipnosi.net:/usr/share/mldonkey/incoming/02-life-bush_and_blair_(instrumental)-cms.mp3'
bash: -c: line 1: syntax error near unexpected token `('
bash: -c: line 1: `scp -f
