The last time its configuration was changed.

We chroot it and it works chrooted.

Since you apparently do not believe me when I say that, please look at
the following:

address@hidden:~$ sftp -1 address@hidden:/
Connecting to sv.gnu.org...
Enter passphrase for RSA key '/home/moa/.ssh/id_rsa1': 
Changing to: /
sftp> ls
sftp> ls /usr/bin

It definitely works.

This account is an usual account.

You requested a special account in order to help us but apparently you
always refers to specific issues related to this non-usual account.

The last time I was on IRC for almost one hour with people from your
project and I left only when it was said it was working. The
configuration did not changed. 

So please, can we have the error messages you get, with an usual
(didn't asked for that information before?)
We are not about to fix something unless we have some clue about
reproducibility of the problem, unless we are able to confirm that
there is really a problem on the server side.
