freeradius (prior to 1.1.4) won't work with vista clients

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release. Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products. This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update
Ping. Jonathan, if we provided you an updated test rpm, would you be able to test it to verify the fix it correctly in place?
Not easily at the moment. The only freeradius servers we have are currently either very much older than this running on EL3 (yes I know), or built from more recent source to avoid this particular issue and include a couple of other bug fixes which looked reasonably important.
I must admit that I'd assumed it just wasn't going to be fixed until RHEL-6 or whenever freeradius was next updated to a new version...
