You should upgrade; that version has a known security bug.

Just to be clear - when you say it "works in debug mode" what *exactly* 
do you mean? In usual use, "debug mode" means:

radiusd -X

...but you list a different command line. Which command line works, and 
which command line doesn't?

When it doesn't work, what are the symptoms?

Please show the debug output when it *does* work.
