#5902: SFTP gives no error if no SSH shell access closes connection
    Reporter:  lkmorlan  |      Owner:  dkocher
        Type:  defect    |     Status:  new
    Priority:  normal    |  Milestone:
   Component:  sftp      |    Version:  4.0.2
    Severity:  normal    |   Keywords:
Architecture:            |   Platform:  Mac OS X 10.6
 When I tried to connect to a SFTP server, the connection started to open
 and then immediately closed, as if my connection attempt simply vanished.
 If the log tray is open, a cryptic SSH_FXP_INIT is all that appears.

 The cause is that my account has no shell access. I could tell that by
 trying to SSH to the server from Terminal: I would connect, get a message
 stating that I have no access, and the connection would close.

 Most users would not know how to try connecting in Terminal and could not
 debug this problem. It would be very helpful if Cyberduck would display an
 error message and the text returned by the server if a connection closes
 right after it opens.
