Description Jay Fenlason 2003-01-10 23:30:07 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
When using scp to put files on, I noticed that the 
destination files were the expected length, but full of NULLs.  It took me a 
few seconds to figure out why my files appeared to be the correct size, but the 
md5sums were wrong.  I expected the truncated files would have their file sizes 
truncated as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Give yourself a small disk quota
2.scp in a large file from another machine
3.use ls -l and od -c to look at the results

Actual Results:  The (truncated) destination file is reported to be the correct 
size by ls

Expected Results:  The truncated destination file should be reported to be the 
truncated size.

This is fixed in OpenSSH CVS and will be in 3.6(p1).
