That is odd.

Try running freeradius in debug mode (with -X), test authentication from
client, and read the result (or post it here). What you should watch out
- whether the files module are loaded and processed before ldap module
- and whether Ldap-UserDN is correctly aded
- what ldap module does

am wondering, because the top of the file users mention that
> # Configuration file for the rlm_files module.

One module can affect others. In this case, if the wiki is correct, the
files module (rlm_files) can be used to add an attribute (Ldap-UserDN). If
that attribute is already present, ldap module will behave differently.
