[RadiusNT] radius bug?

I added another column to our Calls table called "NASID" to correspond with
an entry in the RadAttributes table: RadAttributeID=32, Name='NAS-ID',
Type=0, RadVendorID=0, RadVendorType=0. This is actually supposed to be
"NAS-Identifier", but it can't be named that because Emerald and RadiusNT
need that name associated with attribute 4, which is supposed to be

Anyway, the problem is that RadiusNT can see the new column and displays
info for it when running radius -x15, however it does not make an attempt to
insert that data into the Calls table, eventhough everything matches and
RadiusNT has been restarted. The column name doesn't even appear in the SQL
statement. I've tried varying names for this both in RadAttributes and
Calls, but it doesn't seem to make a difference--it just never tries to
insert the data into the Calls table for that one field. Other Calls
column-additions have never done this before.

The NASID column in Calls is varchar(17), nullable

Does RadiusNT have some kind of problem dealing with attribute 32 when it
comes to the SQL statement?

Here's my -x15 output:
