Using the preconfigured scp section does not work on Debian 10 Buster, complains about missing /dev/null.

"strace scp" confirms this even when only printing the usage:
openat(AT_FDCWD, "/dev/null", O_RDWR)   = 3
close(3)                                = 0

Of course we can add it very easily in the conf file or workaround by loading sftp too which already depends on /dev/null but I think it would be smarter if it worked out of the box (as stated by the man page).



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
