[RndTbl] vsftp not connecting

I should mention that the vsftp log file shows things like
Tue Mar 22 12:32:32 2011 [pid 2] CONNECT: Client ""
Tue Mar 22 12:32:41 2011 [pid 1] [zaphod] FAIL LOGIN: Client ""

So the connection is clearly being made, but I don't know what the
authentication is doing. In /etc/pam.d/vsftp is
# Standard behaviour for ftpd(8).
auth    required        pam_listfile.so item=user sense=deny
file=/etc/ftpusers onerr=succeed

# Note: vsftpd handles anonymous logins on its own. Do not enable

# Standard pam includes
@include common-account
@include common-session
@include common-auth
auth    required        pam_shells.so
