WinSCP fail when receiving server's disk is full.

Once the disk on receiving side reach its end, WinSCP receive a packet it can't decode.
---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Incoming packet was garbled on decryption
---------------------------
Abort   Reconnect   Help   
---------------------------    
scp (tested on Cygwin SCP) correctly tells that there's "no space left on device". Though, scp will first sit there and pour entire file into void, before spelling the error.
Also, NetBox (based on WinSCP code) spell a little more verbose about the error:
Error decoding SFTP packet (9, 4, 9)

Re: WinSCP fail when receiving server's disk is full.

I was not able to reproduce your problem.
With SFTP, I get (as expected) an infamous "Code 4: Failure" error when the disk is full.

With SCP is get "No space left on device".
What server are you connecting to?

That's very similar setup to mine. Can you also try OpenSSH sftp client?
