seems fine to me - but as you don't say what bahaviour you
do want...

I assume you are trying to use the PAM functionality of OpenVPN
server...and using the RADIUS PAM plugin. if ONLY accounts
that are in /etc/passwd etc are working, then it is a PAM
configuration issue. I'd check through the login/account
parts of the PAM subsystem (oh and the PAM logs) to see what
REQUIRES flags etc are being used.
