Looks like the problem is an invalid shell:

Mar 12 13:04:38 mugatu proftpd[518] 208.53.37.98
(bromine.sosstaffing.com[216.112.118.2]): USER abarrett (Login
failed): Invalid shell: ''

I have in my conf:

RequireValidShell off

Not sure what to do here.

BTW - Thanks for all the help so far, you have been great!
