Testing failure during setup

FYI -as this was odd though you would like to know

Given the debug out put and packet collection results 
the anomouls behavior during radius authentication of wifi users was in your mind and mine - clearly 
the fault of the access-point (either in configuration or "hardware"). 
The radius servers were conversely clearly not at fault.
 TAC eventually agreed and sent a replacement - the replacement worked perfectly 
with the same configuration and without alteration to the radius server 
settings - meaning odd behavior was "hardware" failure.
 Thanks to those who thought on this
