I've switched to vsftpd (there's a deb in Woody), which works fine and
is said to be written very securely, though it's not as full featured
as others.

(I haven't tried any others, apart from the stock Debian ftpd - there
have been so many security problems with daemons based on the old BSD
codebase that it seems worth switching to one that's completely new
and unrelated.)

pureftpd rocks. It's built to support most of the ftp commands, and has super simple configuration.

add this to your sources.list:

deb http://pureftpd.sourceforge.net/debian/woody/ ./
