If Robert is using Oracle OID like we've been using Lotus Domino's
LDAP, then you'd want to pass it to inner tunnel.

You need to, on some special cases (at least on the freeradius version
I'm using, 2.1.6). The "special case" here is when you're
authenticating against LDAP database, but the schema doesn't store
cleartext-password or some form of password crypt compatible with
freeradius, leaving you only with LDAP bind for authentication.

See http://www.mail-archive.com/freeradius-users@lists.freeradius.org/msg65103.html
for relevant part in my config.
