--- Comment #4 from Stefan Walter <walteste at inf.ethz.ch> ---
Using put of a zero size file has been the known workaround for a
while. It is not optimal in situations where SFTP is used by an
application and not directly by a user. We ran into the issue with a
backup software that used sftp as backend.

I had to post a change request with that product to implement this
workaround. As you can imagine, they will argue that they should not
care what kind of FS is used on the remote server and that it is up to
the SFTP server software to deal with this. Both of you are right but
that doesn't make the problem go away. :)

Anyway, you can close this as WONTFIX, I will pursue the other change
