That is the expected behavior. For pam to work, the user needs to
exist in whatever user db it recognize (in this case, local user).

Had you read the previous messages, you'd know that if you want to
modify something, it'd be in pam, and NOT in pam_radius plugin.
Possibly by using nss_mysql and getting it to use the same data that
FR is using (with the help of views, or whatever).

But since you decide to ignore it anyway and insist on focusing your
efforts on pam_radius_auth.c, you're pretty much on your own.
