I've got a strange problem copying files via scp from a NetBSD-2.0 host to 
a FreeBSD host.

The scp command starts to copy files, then suddenly (each try at a 
different position) stops to copy a file and says:

flo@of [~/backuparchive] # scp 04-12-08.tar stoehr@cvs:./backuparchive/
04-12-08.tar                                    0%    0     0.0KB/s 
--:-- ETAWrite failed: Permission denied
lost connection
flo@of [~/backuparchive] #

Hm, it seems to work OK for small files - big files (this is 700 MB) fail.

One time it copies 20K, one time 2 MB - and sometimes even nothing.

SSH connections to the machine work fine.
