I was able to get a system call trace of the problem in action, but I still
haven't been able to fix it. The trace is here:

Everything is running just fine until the SIGALRM is raised to let scp know
it's time to update the progess meter while in a call to read(). This can
be seen towards the end of that trace.

I'm mucking around in clientloop.c, trying to handle EINTR in read()s and
write()s, but I haven't been able to fix anything that way yet.

Thanks to Theo de Raadt for sending some suggestions along.
