| scp myfile

Does adding a / at the end make a difference?  Probably not, but that
is what I would have typed.
	scp myfile

Is there already a file or directory named myfile in /tmp on the remote machine?

| it prompts me for the password and then echos the line I put at the bottom of 
| my .bashrc on the remote box ( and returns without any copy 
| happening.
| echo $?

Is this echo on the local side or at the end of the remote's .bashrc?

Is there no diagnostic message printed?

Can you copy it somewhere else (like your home directory)?

| debug stuff says that the command it is sending is "scp -v -t /tmp" ... that 
| also looks curious to me.

That appears to be normal.
