802.1x authentication for 7942 IP phones

I have a problem getting Cisco 7942 IP phones to come up in the voice VLAN with 802.1x. With the following configuration when the phone starts up, authentication with the ACS server is good but when I issue the command show mac address-table f0/1 the switch reports that the phone is up in the data VLAN. The phone though reports it is in the voice VLAN. I have configured the ACS group that the IP phones belong to with to use "device-traffic-voice=voice"and the global config on the switch for aaa is also shown below.

I did have a problem when the phones firmware was 8-5-5 where dot1x authentication first succeeded but then failed with EAP_FAST. Downgrading the firmware to 8-4-4S has resolved this and this is now where I am.
