Package: vim
Version: 1:7.0-017+7
Severity: normal

netrw fails to write through scp a file. Here's the complaint:
  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'

The problem does not occur if a file is unmodified.
