2 weeks ago I could log into the server with no problem. But Now I get an error,

Received too large (1265200236 B) SFTP packet. Max supported packet size is 102400 B.
The error is typically caused by message printed from startup script (like .profile). The message may start with "Kill".

The problem was on the server side, they have fixed it.

I discovered that other users were experiencing the same problem too.
Please post here if you know the cause of this, to help other users.
