I get the same thing. I am about to run gdb on it as soon as my wife
lets me take down the link. Looking at the log, it has nothing to do
with pap. This message comes out after pap authorisation has
succeeded.  Your configuration says the remote must have ip address, if you look at the log, the remote will be announcing
its self as, yet for some reason the test fails.

BTW, if you want to see the messages enabled by the "debug" option,
make sure syslog.conf has an entry for daemon.debug.
