EAP-Success = failure?

Hello everyone,

I'm running wpa_supplicant on RHEL5 using EAP-PEAP/MSCHAPv2 with a
RADIUS server.  From what I can tell by looking at the debug logs on my
machine and the RADIUS server logs, authentication through the RADIUS
server is successful.

The 4-way handshake is failing, however, with:

WPA: Failed to get master session key from EAPOL state machines
WPA: Key handshake aborted

A little bit earlier in the logs, I see this:

EAPOL: Received EAP-Packet frame
EAPOL: SUPP_BE entering state REQUEST
EAPOL: getSuppRsp
EAP: EAP entering state RECEIVED
EAP: Received EAP-Success
EAP: EAP entering state FAILURE
CTRL-EVENT-EAP-FAILURE EAP authentication failed

Can anyone shed any light on the situation?
