scp hangs at 100%, before finishing

I scp a file from my local machine to an amazon machine. The file get transfered fine, but after it gets to 100% transfered it takes a long time to terminate.

Any particular reason. Is there a way to avoid this?

If the directory has a large number of files in it, then there can be a lengthy delay while this list is re-transferred.
