Finally found the reason. I synched the home folders from another
server. The user ids are the same on both servers, but the group ids
are not. So somehow the main folder above the home folders became
root:ftp instead of root:staff. This prevented the users from connecting.
Fixing this made it work again as on the old server.

Thanks for any help.
