I found the problem. When I use scp--from computer A to computer B
only--my home isn't c:\cygwin\home\ryan, but c:\Program
File\Git\home\ryan. ???
Why do you think it is?
Sorry, I should have given more detail. When I scp from computer A to
B, the copy succeeds, but it places it in c:\Program

c:\cygwin\home\ryan is my home directory on both computer A and B in
normal bash shells and also when I ssh from one to the other. Why is
scp behaving differently?
Check /etc/profile for details on how HOME is set...

I've seen that explanation. HOME is set to /home/ryan on both boxes,
but this seems to be deeper than just how HOME is set, because a
/home/ryan exists in both c:\Program Files\Git (wrong place) and
c:\cygwin (right place). Why would cygwin put /home in a different
place when I use scp?

See <>.  It's best to include cygcheck output
from both machine in your report.

My WAG is that your 'git' is a <> and you're
getting at least 'scp' from there on the "problem" machine.  But your full
problem report should help determine that.  You can also try things like
"which scp" to see if it points a finger.
