This error is slightly misleading. If you remove the pap module in
2.x, the server will internally authenticate in a similar way by
setting Auth-Type to 'Local', iff it is not already set.

It's an indication that you removed pap, as it will only occur if
no Auth-Type has been set, and there is a User-Password in the

This will break in 3.0. You need to add pap back in again and not
rely on Local auth.

You added 'bob' at the bottom of the 'users' file. Move it to the
top. (And add pap back in).
