This is the first I've heard of any such problems, so I would not say
it's being looked into on the pptpd side.  I have to guess at this
point that the problem is with the mac clients.  Have you gotten either
to work against a MS RRAS server that only accepts MS-CHAPv2?  Does
it work without MPPE?

Can you add 'debug' and 'dump' to the ppp options file and send a log?
