The problem is not with scp but with sshd (since scp invokes ssh which
in turn talks to sshd.

The difference is that loginsuccess is only called as part of the login
recording, which only happens for "interactive" logins (ie ones where
you get a pty).  You should see the same thing if, instead of scp, you
ran something like "ssh yourserver true" and checked the failed login
count afterward.

Not sure what to do about it, though.  We can call loginsuccess
immediately after successful authentication but that will mean calling
it a second time when the pty is allocated.
