           Summary: scp mishandles files with spaces in names
           Product: Portable OpenSSH
           Version: older versions
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: scp
        AssignedTo: openssh-unix-dev at mindrot.org
        ReportedBy: david at desjardins.org

Reproduce as follows:

% touch "123 456"
% scp "123 456" 789
cp: copying multiple files, but last argument `789' is not a directory
Try `cp --help' for more information.

Using 'cp' works fine in this case.

The same problem occurs in many other cases, e.g., when using scp -r with a
directory which has a space in its name.
