vsftpd chroot problems

I have vsftpd 2.0.1 on a gentoo box. I am desparately trying to get the chroot_local_user to work. I've tried the following:

(file vsftpd.chroot_list is empty)
(file vsftpd.chroot_list has all my users in it)
(file vsftpd.chroot_list has all my users in it)

I've tried these things and yet my users can still log in and see the entire drive. I am running exclusive SFTP if that matters. What could be stopping the chroot command from working? Is there anything else I could try?
