{} not needed.

It would help me if somebody told me what this default-path is used
for by sshd on the remote system.  When I see the error

scp wierdlm at karadi:.bashrc bashrc
wierdlm at's password: 
bash: scp: command not found

which bash reports the error, the remote (on karadi) or the local?  

Is sshd on the remote server karadi trying to run scp on karadi?  

If that is the case, why is not it trying to find scp where scp was

How can I test *where* sshd on karadi is trying search for scp?

Finally, is default-path used to find scp, or it is used for some
other purpose?
