the whole transfer queue is broken if there is just one file with on ampersand in its name. this is annoying if one has been spending some time to fill the queue. happens with WinSCP 4.2.6 (with SCP, SFTP is ok) under XP. even if that is a principal problem of SCP there should be a warning or the file should be skipped instead of completly breaking.

error-message in german:

SCP konnte fr den Start der bertragung nicht ausgefhrt werden. Bitte stellen Sie sicher, dass SCP auf dem Server installiert ist und die $PFAD- Variable den Pfad zu SCP enthlt. Anstatt SCP knnen Sie auch SFTP probieren.

remote server is openssh 4.4, SSH1
