In 0.63, when PSCP is downloading a file and is using the old-style SCP protocol, at the end it emits the spurious message "Fatal: Received unexpected end-of-file from server" even if the transfer completed successfully.

As far as we know, this can't result in data loss – the file(s) being received have all been saved and closed by the time the spurious error condition is reported.
