[Jailkit-users] is it possible to "sudo su - user" to a jailkit user?

I just got jailkit up and running on Ubuntu 12.04 and I have to say it is very 
impressive - very smart and intuitive to configure. I'm impressed.

I'm using it to allow multiple users to connect and manage files in their own 
public_html directories - owned by them. I also need to periodically help them 
with files on their websites. If I need to create files or folders, I know that 
i can do that as the root user and then chown the files to the user - but it 
would be nice if I could switch to the user's jailkit account and make the 
edits as if I was the user.

On a system without jailkit I would just do "sudo su - username" and that would 
be that. When I do this to a jailkit user from root it just bounces me right 
back out to to root.

I know the account works fine because I can ssh to the box as the user with the 
jail kit  account, but is there also a way to switch to the jail kit user from 
a privileged user who is already ssh'ed to the box?
