  The dictionary files that are shipped with the server have changed.
You MUST use the new dictionaries with 1.1.6, for a number of reasons.

  That's what /etc/raddb/dictionary is for.  You should $INCLUDE the
dictionaries from 1.1.6, and then $INCLUDE your local dictionaries.  Do
NOT edit the dictionaries in /usr/share.

  The old dictionaries contained inconsistent and contradictory
information.  The new dictionaries don't, and the code no longer allows
those kind of problems.
