A single path with glob characters:

  $ scp -p buildhost:/path/to/sets/[bem]* .

works.  A compound path:

  $ scp -p buildhost:"/path/to/sets/text.tgz /path/to/kernel/netbsd-CUSTOM.gz" .

fails with:

  protocol error: filename does not match request

Multiple sources each prefixed with the source host:

  $ scp -p buildhost:/path/to/sets/text.tgz buildhost:/path/to/kernel/netbsd-CUSTOM.gz .

works, but prompts for the source host's user's password each time.

Anyone else run into this?
