My reading is subtly different. In his first email, he said:

radtest to localhost - ok
request from remote nas - no debug output

...but in a later email he says:

radclient on localhost - fine
request from remote nas - tcpdump shows packet, but "no info in the log"

He then says:

I've tried to send auth request from localhost againg, but with wrong 
key. As a result -- no log-info in radius.log

It's not clear to me that he's consistently testing with "radiusd -X", 
or if he's looking at the "log { }" stanza output, which is not the 
right thing to do.
