thread pools in 2.1.10

When we start radiusd with a thread pool configured, none of the requests from the pam-radius-auth proxy client are serviced/processed.  The client never gets a reply from the server.  From the server logs, the request is never seen.

I noticed that when the server is started without the thread pool, the following logs are displayed (but they are not displayed when the thread pool is configured):

Listening on authentication address * port 1812 
Listening on accounting address * port 1813 
Listening on proxy address * port 1814 
Ready to process requests.

  I don't see a problem with thread pools.

  And it would be *good* to describe the problem in a little more
detail.  "Something is wrong", followed by 100's of lines of debug
output is unhelpful.

  What issue?
