Very slow performance over SSH for Windows 8 Remote Desktop (esp. File Transfer)

I'm getting very poor performance with File Transfer in Windows 8 Remote Desktop over SSH.

Wondering if anyone can shed some light on this, as I notice that my XP VM is far more responsive in enumerating the local machines files & folders. The difference is so stark as to render the Windows 8 remote desktop client unusable (clicking on a mapped local drive letter can take > 1 minute to respond vs. 5 seconds). Overall, the user interface is also noticeably laggier.

I know this is not a CopSSH-based issue but has something to do with the Windows 8 Remote Desktop client, but I'm at my wits' end and am not sure where to post this to get some idea what could be the issue?

Hope someone can put their wizard cap on to shed some light on this!
