A server I can ssh into fine has begun refusing to scp.
$ scp ~/tmp/foo firstname.lastname@example.org:~/tmp/ lost connection
scp -v -v I can see the connection succeeds and the transfer appears to succeed, but no file appears on the other side.

It is a CentOS 5.9 machine.
Things I've checked...
- I have permission to write to that directory.
- The user has a sensible shell (/bin/bash).
- I tried moving my
~/.ssh/configout of the way.
- scp'ing to that machine from others with entirely different operating systems also fail.
- The disk is not full.
- Restarting sshd.
