I get completely different results using that file:

  [adamb at orps1 ~]# radeapclient -x auth pass < 47K8bEB6
  Loading input data...
  Read 1 element(s) from input: stdin
  Loaded: 1 input element(s).
  Adding new socket: src:, dst:
  Added new socket: 5 (num sockets: 1)
  Transaction: 0, sending packet: 0 (id: 2)...
  Sent Access-Request Id 2 from to length 51
  	User-Name = "tu"
  	EAP-MD5-Password = "testp2"
  	EAP-Code = Response
  	EAP-Id = 210
  	EAP-Type-Identity = 0x7475
  	Message-Authenticator = 0x00
  	EAP-Message = 0x02d20007017475

Double check the file for typo's (magic quotes, non-breaking spaces or even Windows line endings might throw it).

Otherwise I'm not sure what could be going on - did you build FreeRADIUS yourself, or is CentOS shipping with 3.0.13?
