Mmm, I tried with WinSCP, supposing FileZilla was bad with SFTP, but I have basically the 
same behavior: I seem to be connected, but even a simple 'pwd' typed on the command line 
fails. I connect to with my login name and LP password. The clients 
report a connection.

I suppose I can get a Windows command line SFTP client, but I might as well just download 
hitchhiker which seems to be of general usefulness anyway.

In the meantime, I tried again (I am obstinate) a remote upgrade, but this time using the 
SFTP mode, since it seems capable to do stuff lp: protocol cannot... I was successful:

 > bzr upgrade -v s
Connected (version 2.0, client Twisted)
Authentication (publickey) successful!
Secsh channel 1 opened.
[chan 1] Opened sftp connection (server version 3)
starting upgrade of s
making backup of s
   to s
starting repository conversion
repository converted

So I will delete the backup with hitchhiker and try again in this mode.

Thanks for the help!
