  The key thing is:

(0)     [files] = noop

  i..e the user wasn't found in the "users" file.

 So... which file are you editing?  Make sure it's the same file that the server is reading.

  Except that the server is reading /usr/local/etc/raddb/users

  And it's *printing this out in the debug output*.
