oh..this is going to be interesting... just grabbing the popcorn and
cola ready for the show!  :-)

<snip> oh...that wasnt a flame!

disappointed...the rest of the popcron is going away now and the colas
going to be flat for when its needed :(

..do you mean this bit of radiusd.conf:

#  On systems with shadow passwords, you might have to set 'group = shadow'
#  for the server to be able to read the shadow password file.  If you can
#  authenticate users while in debug mode, but not in daemon mode, it may be
#  that the debugging mode server is running as a user that can read the
#  shadow info, and the user listed below can not.
?  seems clear to me.
