Problem solved.

ssh password is provided by gpg-agent and was defined in .bashrc
Gambas3 uses a true shell, sh (default behavior) and in this case, it doesn't 
execute .bashrc file - so when rsync/scp asked for the ssh password they were 
stuck in an infinite loop (SSH_AUTH_SOCK, ... were undefined).

After checking default behavior of bash session and startup files (see https://
www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/html_node/Bash-Startup-Files.html), the 
solution was to move ssh/gpg-agent launching in ~/.profile file and everything 
is solved.

voilà, and let's hope that could help someone else :)
