why may wired 802.1x hostapd pass traffic?

I'm having problem configuring hostapd as a wired 802.1x authenticator at SuSE
Linux 9.2 machine (kernel 2.6.8-24).
Hostapd compiles OK, I launch it like
/home/n/install/hostapd-0.4.7 # ./hostapd ./wired.conf
Then I see:
Configuration file: ./wired.conf
Opening raw packet socket for ifindex 2
Using interface eth0 with hwaddr 00:02:44:71:ec:e7 and ssid ''
eth0: RADIUS Authentication server 127.0.0.1:1812
eth0: RADIUS Accounting server 127.0.0.1:1813
eth0: RADIUS Sending RADIUS message to accounting server
eth0: RADIUS Next RADIUS client retransmit in 3 seconds
Flushing old station entries
Deauthenticate all stations
THE PROBLEM is that when I "ping" from the connected PC to eth0, pings are
accepted and answered, like user has already authorized. But there's no even
802.1x supplicant on the connected PC! Why do packets may pass?
Thanks in advance if somebody helps.
