Yup. It's me who had this problem. Actually my switches are from 4500 
family and Oxiel's are 5500 however those families are kind of similar.

Oxiel: use the newest available firmware for your switches (the one from 
12th of May) - namely 3.03.1.

Then disable handshake (dis)funcion.

<5500> system-view
[5500] undo dot1x handshake enable

And - because I've found another bug - you'll have to use port based 
authentication method instead of the default mac based

[5500] dot1x port-method portbased

If you will have any further questions - feel free to ask.

Kind regards,
