If you are having this problem on a Dell laptop, then, as Larry Hall
pointed out earlier, a software package from Embassy has been
causing problems. As far as I know this was first described here:
You should be able to contact either Dell or Embassy for a patch
that fixes this problem. I have applied the fix on several dual-core
Dell laptops and have not seen the 'scp-timeout' problem since.
