I think you mean this:

        pap {
                encryption_scheme = md5

Well I have this in my configuration since I tried to set this up but 
when you look some messages ago I got it working with crypt. With the
md5 hash I always got the missing Auth-Type error. I also added an

Auth-Type MD5 {

to the Authenticate section but I wasn't that lucky.
