mount --bind doesn't work with proftpd

I'm using proftpd as ftp-server and chroot everyone to their homedir. This works fine, but now I'd like everyone to access a common dir too.
I read in the proftpd userguide that I couldn't use symlinks but have to use "mount --bind olddir newdir".
I did this, and in the shell it works fine. But when I access the ftp with FlashFXP, I don't get the contents of olddir.

I'm using debian with kernel 2.4.18

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
