I've been playing with this a lot now.

Looking at the two files /etc/passwd and /bin/compart.jail:

If I change the /etc/passwd shell for the user to /bin/bash, scp is fine.
When I cange it back to /bin/compart.jail, it's not fine, as before.

If I change /bin/compart.jail to read:
scp is _still_ not functioning in the same way as before

Looking at debug logging of sshd, I can see that the sudo line in the 
/bin/compart.jail is called, so I know the system does manage to read 
that file. In case you really want to know, here are its permissions:
4 -rwxr-xr-x   1 root    root    390 2004-01-23 12:09 /bin/compart.jail

So it looks like scp doesn't like the login shell being /bin/compart.jail

There must be a way.....
