This packet from the authentication server was completely bogus.. It
replied with a EAP-Request/Identity to the first fragment of a EAP-TLS
ClientCertificate message while it should have sent EAP-TLS ACK to
request the next fragment. For some reason, its behavior changes on the
second attempt and it does indeed send the ACK which allows the
authentication to complete.

Which authentication server are you using? It looks quite broken and
the next step would be to look at its debug log to see what it is trying
to do.
