The problem has been found and solved.

The data directory for users that proftpd chroots to is on an NFS share.

The users home dir permissions have to be nobody:proftpd

The scripts we use creates the home dirs but the chown/grp now fails ( but still exists zero on RHEL6) and the home dirs are left nobody:nobody.

When connecting over sftp an odd error is shown : server accepted our key but refused the connection.  Or similar wording, because I did not save the message.

Thanks for following up!  I'll see if the error messages for these key situations can be improved, to help find issues like this sooner.
