What's your default shell? Would it help if you force /bin/bash on SCP tak of login dialog?

I have these if I login via PuTTY, that's what you mean?

xxx@yyy% ls /bin/*sh
/bin/csh /bin/sh /bin/tcsh

xxx@yyy% uname -a
FreeBSD yyy.pair.com 4.8-STABLE FreeBSD 4.8-STABLE #0: Sun Apr 23 07:50:52 EDT 2006 sigma-at-koloda.pair.com:/usr/src/sys/compile/PAIRqxa i386

And these are allowed/used (in that order?):

xxx@yyy% cat /etc/shells
# $FreeBSD: src/etc/shells,v 1.3.2.1 2000/07/10 08:47:17 obrien Exp $
#
# List of acceptable shells for chpass(1).
# Ftpd will not allow users to connect who are not using
# one of these shells.

/bin/sh
/bin/csh
/bin/tcsh
/usr/local/bin/tcsh
/usr/bin/passwd
/usr/bin/ftppasswd
/usr/local/bin/bash
/usr/local/bin/fdsh
/usr/local/bin/ksh
/usr/local/bin/ksh93
/usr/local/bin/zsh
/usr/local/bin/esh
/usr/local/bin/psh

Btw. Can you remove the mailto-link in above post? Thanks.

Now I tried with /usr/local/bin/bash as shell and it worked!

Something else... Inserting emoticons or clicking other codings in this posting-area does not work with FireFox 1.5 and 2.0, a script error occurs:

Error: txtarea has no properties
Source File: <invalid hyperlink removed by admin>

Good.

Maybe you can add a notice "maybe it's your shell" to the enhanced error-description which now just says "User abort" if you stop the process after a few retries to read the dir. Or some more generic hint, would maybe help other users.
