I experienced, in some cases with some ftp client, it happen the same
thing and no relevant logs messages were present.
For obtaing some log messages i tried to put these entris in my SSHD_CONFIG file:
#obsoletes QuietMode and FascistLogging
In /etc/syslog.conf put this entry:
The create the log file:
kill -HUP $SYSLOG_PID
then retry to use SSH/SFTP and check your error (send them to me)
I changed my sftp client (Secure FX), and now it runs well
