The ":ffff:" parts of the addresses indicate that your proftpd has been
compiled with IPv6 support. There was some work done in 1.3.1 to better
handle IPv4 ACLs and IPv4-mapped IPv6 addresses:

http://bugs.proftpd.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2785

but it looks like there are still issues. I'm able to duplicate this
issue locally, and am looking into it.

In the meantime, you could try disabling IPv6 support, by using the
following in your proftpd.conf:

UseIPv6 off

If instead you do need the IPv6 support, you could add the following rule
to your section:

Allow from ::ffff:127.0.0.

Hope this helps,
