Ok I fixed one aspect of the issue.  I found out that I didn't have VMWare tools running, and turned off TCP OFfloading.  But still getting an Accept-Reject for the user.  For my other test user "bob" it works fine.

Configure your shared secret in the RADIUS dissector in wireshark.  If the secret is correct you'll see the decoded password in the packet trace.
