Hello and thanks for assistance.

I just compiled freeRadius with those debug entries and the radiusd -X 
now shows:

  Module: Instantiating module "files" from file 
   files {
     usersfile = "/usr/local/etc/raddb/users"
     acctusersfile = "/usr/local/etc/raddb/acct_users"
     preproxy_usersfile = "/usr/local/etc/raddb/preproxy_users"
     compat = "no"
reading pairlist file /usr/local/etc/raddb/users
reading pairlist file /usr/local/etc/raddb/
reading pairlist file /usr/local/etc/raddb/
reading pairlist file /usr/local/etc/raddb/acct_users
reading pairlist file /usr/local/etc/raddb/preproxy_users

So freeradius definitely not getting a handle on those files that looks 
to me more like a system issue that a radius.
I am running this freeradius on a virtual server OpenSUSE 12.1 using 

Did anybody came across of issue like that??
