  There's nothing special about those debug messages, or about the
request which initiates TLS.  It should be producing messages *only*
when the debug flag is non-zero.

  That's a different issue.  You have idle_timeout set to 30s, so
FreeRADIUS closes the socket.  However, the client is configured to keep
the socket open.  So it immediately re-opens the socket.

  One short-term work-around is to set idle_timeout to zero.  Or,
configure the client to not immediately re-open the connection.

  I just pushed a fix for that.
