I just checked, and the example/scp.c is wrong in as it seems to assume that
libssh2_channel_read() will always return the full amount of data, while in
reality it is made to never return MORE data than requested but may very well
return less (and even 0 is not an error).

I've fixed this example code now and pushed my commit.
