I suspect that you have placed each sample into a unique chunk
(where they could actually rightfully belong since this is different
subjects). Then with N-Fold partitioning you are pretty much doing
leave-1-out. Hence your errors would be either 0 or 1 since you have
only 1 sample you cross-validate into.
should give you a better "picture"
but mention that you have only few samples, and lots of features, and
disbalance between conditions, so classifier might just go for the one
with more samples to reduce error etc...

this is irrelevant here since this is independent samples
