Mark has said before that this behavior is intentional, to avoid 
giving specific error information to an attacker.

Yes there's definitely an assumption that the file you're trying to 
copy will exist at the source location, which does not hold true once 
you start using singlecopy. The "can't stat/auth failed" log message 
spamminess on both client and server and this problem are follow-ons
from that assumption.
