FYI - Just reading this thread now, I had the same issue with Proftpd
not starting on a 5106R this past weekend. It runs in standalone mode
and I didn't try to solve, I restored the backup proftpd.conf file and
all started and seems to work fine. Seems I shoulda had this problem a
month ago since this server updates every weekend, checked the logs,
didn't come in until this past Saturday :-/

Please let me know if there is some special reason I should run the
default .conf file that came with the update. I didn't see anything that
looked needed using diff.
