I'm going to live with this "fix" unless I come across something else. I'm running the latest RHEL7 included FreeRadius package which is based on 3.x. I don't think that's the issue though.

  "Based on 3.x" doesn't mean a lot.  Vendors are notorious for sticking with versions from many years ago.

  I'd suggest trying 3.0.17.  It has a fix for $INCLUDE ordering in the "users" file.  You're probably running an older version.
