From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
When using scp to put files on people.redhat.com, I noticed that the 
destination files were the expected length, but full of NULLs.  It took me a 
few seconds to figure out why my files appeared to be the correct size, but the 
md5sums were wrong.  I expected the truncated files would have their file sizes 
truncated as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Give yourself a small disk quota
2.scp in a large file from another machine
3.use ls -l and od -c to look at the results

Actual Results:  The (truncated) destination file is reported to be the correct 
size by ls

Expected Results:  The truncated destination file should be reported to be the 
truncated size.

This is fixed in OpenSSH CVS and will be in 3.6(p1). 

If RedHat wants to include the fix before this, it may be found at:


Note that a similar fix was needed for rcp.
