PSCP and PSFTP on Windows can hang on exit in various failure situations. Many of these involve the -batch option, which is embarrassing. For example:
Interestingly, Plink does not appear to hang in similar situations (and nor does PuTTY proper).
PSCP/PSFTP do not hang in all failure situations -- for instance, they appear not to hang when interactive password authentication fails.
Looking at when this crept in, it might be another side-effect of the introduction of the winhandl.c mechanism.
