The debug log you've posted is _not_ the server rejecting anything - it's the client choosing not to authenticate. The warning is simply a suggestion of the likely cause.
Any time FreeRADIUS rejects a user, it will _always_ send an explicit Access-Reject (unless configured otherwise, or using PEAP with retries). If this is what you're now seeing you need to post a much more complete log.
It may ultimately turn out that FreeRADIUS is misbehaving, but the only thing that can tell you why the client is choosing not to authenticate is the client. What supplicant is in use?
