Problem with Password and MySQL

I am trying to use MySQL to autenticate users of a wireless network, using EAP-TTLS-PAP or PEAP-MS-CHAPv2.

I use the following users file:

user1           User-Password == "user1"
DEFAULT Suffix == "", Autz-Type := SQL

while I have the following user in radcheck in MySQL

mysql> select * from radcheck;
| id | UserName | Attribute     | op | Value |
| 11 | sql1     | User-Password | == | sql1  |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Logging with the user "user1" work fo both TTLS-PAP and PEAP-MS-CHAP-V2 (Tested with wpa_supplicant (both TTLS and PEAP) and MS Windows XP (PEAP)).

When i try to authenticate as the user sql1 (which is in the MySQL DB), works for TTLS-PAP but doesn't work with PEAP. Seems that inside the file "users" are handled both PAP and MS-CHAPv2 password, while with MySQL I can use only PAP.

The relevant part of the log with radiusd -X is provided below.

Thanks to anyone helping with this.
