EAPoL between non-adjacent devices

I have a problem configuring 802.1X.

There is an intermediate Cisco switch between supplicant (WindowsXP) and authenticator (Cisco switch). EAPoL doesn't pass through this intermediate switch. It requires supplicant and authenticator to be physically adjacent. I cannot eliminate this intermediate switch.

Does anybody know the way how to ensure 802.1X authentication in this case?

Thank you,
