oh but you do - or did you just not restart the server? 

are you sure you are editing the right 'users' file - so many many times people
have installed multiple copies and then found that whilst they are editing
eg /etc/raddb/users, the daemon is reading /usr/local/etc/raddb/users  etc

if you check the full output of 'radiusd -X' you will see which files it is reading
