redirect to STDERR problem

I wrote the following small perl-script to transfer files between to
machines using scp.

$COMMAND = "scp address@hidden:/foo/foofile . 2> .myTMP";
$RETCODE = system($COMMAND);

I wanted to redirect scp errors (file not found, etc.) to STDERR via the
2> command.
Everything worked fine on my system (SuSE Linux 6.3, perl 5.6.0, bash
Then I executed my small proggie on an other system (SuSE Linux 6.1,
perl 5.005_02, bash 2.02.1(1)) and oooops, the password prompt was
redirected to STDERR. I'm using bash-shell on both systems and I don't
think it's a perl problem.

Any suggestions?

Have a nice weekend and thank you.
