Bug#473137: misleading scp error "scp: /doesnotexist/: Is a directory"

Package: openssh-client
Version: 1:5.1p1-3
Severity: wishlist

confirming that this bug still exists on the current package for
debian testing/lenny.

> root@s1 /etc/snmp # sh s2 "ls /etc/snmp/"
> sh: s2: No such file or directory

ok - this is expected.

> root@s1 /etc/snmp # scp *local* s2:/etc/snmp/
> scp: /etc/snmp/: Is a directory

misleading error message
