  Can you look at the directory as root, from the shell?

  In this case, the server is just calling OpenSSL... which calls the
normal file API.  If that returns "no permission", OpenSSL is at the
mercy of the file system, and FreeRADIUS is at the mercy of OpenSSL.

  If worse comes to worse, for testing do:

$ cd /etc/raddb
$ chmod -R ug+rwx .
