Which clients did you test with? Some station devices have issues with
multiple AKMs being advertised in the WPA/RSN elements and enabling both
WPA2-PSK and WPA2-EAP will end up doing that.

Have you tried with a Linux client using wpa_supplicant? If so, could
you please share a debug log showing such a failure with WPA2-PSK?
