This may be a dumb question, but is there any reason why
  scp a at b:c d:
fails, where
  scp a at b:c .
  scp c d:

I get "Host key verification failed.". I'm using nothing more complex
than RSA authorized_hosts based authentication.

I'm seeing this on openssh-client 1:5.8p1-1ubuntu3 and
OS-X 10.6 OpenSSH_5.2p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8r 8 Feb 2011.
