scp and sshd logs

Hello Team ,
"scp -C" (compression) is not working with some special kind of files.

The source code has been compiled with xlc compiler.
# xlc -qversion
IBM XL C/C++ Enterprise Edition V8.0 for AIX
Version: 08.00.0000.0012

The issue has been seen on AIX, AIX, AIX

You can recreate the issue in the following way :- 

# scp -C /usr/lib/libssl.a localhost:/
root at localhost's password:
libssl.a                              0%    0     0.0KB/s   --:-- ETA
ssh_packet_send: invalid format
lost connection

* Here i am using libssl.a library file as a special file. 
Also i am sending debug logs for both scp and sshd daemon.
