I can't upload files using sftp

Hi, I've installed fedora 10 (this is the version Liinux pptpd2 with OpenSSH_5.1p1, OpenSSL 0.9.8g, I need that some user connect to the server by sftp and write files. I'm using the ChrootDirectory option on sshd_config file; If I use the user that I've created I can connect to the server but when I tried to upload some file I received this error messages:

Uploading text_file to /upload/text_file
Couldn't get handle: Permission denied

These are the lines that I added to sshd_config file:

Match User test
       ChrootDirectory /home/test
   #    X11Forwarding no
   #    AllowTcpForwarding no
   #    ForceCommand cvs server
       ForceCommand internal-sftp

And these are the permissions for the user directory:

drwxr-xr-x 3 root:test     /home/test
drwxr-xr-x 2 test:test 4096 2010-01-12 13:49 /home/test/upload

I 've searched on my logs and I didn't find any error message... any idea???

you're uploading to /upload/ instead of upload/
change your sftp command line
