Freeradius with LDAP backend for pptpd (via MS-CHAP)

Well, as I mentioned (a couple of times now), the LDAP server was indeed 
returning a password to FreeRADIUS, since radtest was always working 
fine. So the problem wasn't in the LDAP server itself, because it does 
"return a password when an LDAP client queries it for a password" (as I 
also mentioned it, we are currently and successfully using it to 
authenticate other services). The problem was really related to MS-CHAP, 
and now that I changed to PAP, it all seems to be working fine...
