the incoming request contains this:

       CHAP-Challenge = 0x6e37280ebb86c255086f2ab80c521e24
       CHAP-Password = 0x005223d2d8d662465852923eae583ade21

if it was PAP is wouldnt have these values, it would just have User-Password = "blahblah"

so, CHAP module sees these values...and sets the auth-type to CHAP.   PAP module
is doing a noop because the auth-type has already been set.   

did you have this construction working in your older FR setup?  If so, you will need to check
yoru config to see what else you were doing..... if not...i'd say change the ChilliSpot server to send
the request as PAP
