Sorry Alan, you're quite right. I made the assumption that if the microsoft
2008 server accepted long shared secrets, it *didn't* truncate them. It
does. Having now retested against WinRadius - another freely available 
RADIUS server, both radclient and my embedded client (with the change to
MAX_SECRET_LENGTH) appear to work.
