quit - they are functions/methods that are to be deprecated...so eventually your
system wont work at all... if you send us a complete radiusd -X then we can say where
you are using them... my quick guess would be that you have set these values in your
SQL tables...  usually something like  user op value... whoich would be eg

user1 == User-Password  or such.  so please change that so the Op is   :=
and the value check is Cleartext-Password

likewise...Auth-Type = Local is a massive override of program logic. rarely
do you need it....the daemon can work out the right type with eg the pap module
(which should be active and listede last in the authoize section if memory
serves correctly)
