This sounds like a known bug, <https://debbugs.gnu.org/35639>. A patch
is in preparation, but we are waiting for the end of the assignment
process for Jeronimo, for legal purposes of contributions to Emacs.

If your local system runs GNU/Linux, it might be worth to use the sftp
method instead. This uses GVFS for connection to the remote system, and
shouldn't suffer from this problem.

Best regards, Michael.
