Hi Charles,
  a Debian user find a strange behaviour of netrw when saving over
scp://. The full story is available at http://bugs.debian.org/374328

The visible nuisance is that, upon saving a modified file over scp://,
the user see something like:

  Error detected while processing function netrw#NetWrite:
  line  219:
  "scp://foo/bar" E212: Can't open file for writing
  :!scp -q /tmp/v123456/7 'foo:bar'

In spite of the file actually being properly saved on the remote

After some debugging I spotted that the strange behaviour only appears
if 'autowrite' is set. When such a variable is set indeed the execution
of scp trigger an automatic save of vim, which probably bypasses netrw

Any idea about how to fix this?

Thanks in advance,
