Pretty abnormal behavior.
What do you have in your /etc/sshd_config file?
At a minimum, you would need definitions to capture the SFTP subprotocol (Subsystem), to match your jailed group, and to define their unique user jail directory.
I use this:
Subsystem sftp /usr/libexec/sftp-server Match Group jailedsftp X11Forwarding no ChrootDirectory /var/sftp/%u AllowTcpForwarding no
Hope this helps a bit.

Thanks Esther - that's what the sshd_config file looked like, more or less, before I reverted it to the backup, and got the above result. Perhaps a reboot would fix it... fun fun. But I'd love to get this working, and haven't yet.
Is this what you get if a user authenticates with Open Directory and attempts an ssh connection? Seems pretty weird.
Thanks for your help.
