  You don't.

  The problem is that ANOTHER PAM module is failing.  So the PAM libraries are mangling the password.

  There is NOTHING you can do to FreeRADIUS or pam_radius_auth to fix the problem.

  You MUST modify the PAM configuration on the client machine to remove the problem PAM module.

  The answers in the link you posted are pretty clear.

  Fix the PAM configuration on the client.  The link you posted says this.

  How to fix it?  I don't know... go ask the PAM people how their software works.
