Debug dot1x events - pae-ether-type

Can somebody explain me why and when (which event triggers this) I see in the debug dot1x events the following message :

Jul 19 11:12:56.754: dot1x-ev:Received pkt saddr =0000.0000.0000 , daddr = 0180.c200.0003,

pae-ether-type = 888e.0202.0000

Question 1 : Why a source address of 0000.0000.0000 ??

Question 2: what is the pae-ether-type = 888e.0202.0000 and what does the address bits means (I have seen several different addresses e.g. 888e.0202.0000, 888e.0101.0000)

Thanks

Re: Debug dot1x events - pae-ether-type

0000.0000.0000 effectively means "unknown" to the switch. This will "look" better in the future ;-).

The key part for the rest is 0x888e for the PAE Ethernet Type. I'd guess this is inaccurate or just being printed in the wrong format WRT this debug.
