  That's nice.  See http://wiki.freeradius.org/list-help

  We don't need to see configuration files.  We need to see debug output.

  WHAT accounting log?  The server can produce many different kinds of outputs.  If you know what logs are produced, you know what module produced them.  And then you know how to disable them.

  If only there was some kind of debug output which could help here.
