Cannot login as root to Synology NAS Diskstation 5.1

Winscp 515 and 562
Win 8.1
Protocol: SCP
GUI, with either interface style
Trying to login as root to Synology NAS, after the upgrade to Diskstation 5.1
Errors: Host is not communicating for more than 15 seconds; after aborting: Error skipping startup message. Your shell is probably incompatible with the application (BASH is recommended).
"Optimize connection buffer size" has no effect
Changing shell from default has no effect
Note: Putty with SSH continues to work with 5.1, SCP worked with Diskstation 5.0 and stopped with 5.1
Logs attached
Description: logs with default shell and Bash

DSM 5.1/WinSCP problem [SOLVED]

Change shell setting in WinSCP to "/bin/ash" (NOT "/bin/bash"). If you continue to have trouble, try also changing permissions on busybox: chmod 04755 /bin/busybox. Regards.

Changing the shell to /bin/ash resolved the problem.
