I have real issues understanding FreeBSD's ftpd!

Man page "ftpusers(5)" states, that an entry "username allow" will allow access
to ftpd. But every user listed in /etc/ftpusers is denied access, no matter
whether there is "allow" appended to the entry or not! This is strange.
Whenever I delete a user's name from that file I wish to have access to the
ftpd service, that user can login - but addig the users even as "username
allow" (no * in the file, nothing else but the initial users names) access is

I managed so far to start the ftpd via inetd - the service running
from /etc/rc.conf is still impossible. But operations, not even a simple "ls",
are possible since the service dies ...

Either I'm some kind of dull and do not understand this brillant peice of
software, or there is something really fishy.
