--- Comment #4 from karl.mumford at ext.ons.gov.uk ---
This bug is still there in ssh v7.1p1 on AIX and can be reproduced in
exactly the same way.
It should be noted that the scp hang only occurs in Kron shell i.e. the
same procedure done in Bourne or C shells does not cause the hang.
A workaround is to use the 'screen' command instead of nohup and
Another workaround is to ssh from the source system back to itself, run
the nohup scp & command and then background the looped ssh connection
with ~&
