In the statement "Odds are they're XP SP2 boxes, where MS broke EAP" what exactly is broken.  Will XP SP2 not work with PEAP?

  No, because it returns success.  SSL is looking for a client
certificate, and PEAP doesn't need one.  SSL is then "helpful", and
prints out error messages.

  The rest of your debug log shows that the client just stops talking
to the server.  Odds are they're XP SP2 boxes, where MS broke EAP.
