RadiusNT username length

I found some interesting information about RadiusNT username lengths that I
thought I should post. I'm running RadiusNT in ODBC mode, connecting to a
Platypus database. When I put a username of 'reallybighonkingmassiveuser'
(the largest that Platypus would allow) in with a maximum length password
('reallybighonking') RadiusNT would Dr. Watson until that session stopped
attempting to connect. I started reducing the username length, and found
that it seems that the absolute maximum username length seems to be around
20 characters from what I found. As soon as the username was under 20
characters it stopped crashing RadiusNT. The SQL statement that seems to be
the culprit is the following (I never saw this statement come up using -x15
when the username was above 20 characters) -

SQL Statement: Select ra.RadAttributeID, Name, Data, Value, Type From
RadConfigs rc, RadAttributes ra Where ra.RadAttributeID=rc.RadAttributeID
AND rc.AccountID=1216

Just some interesting FYI for everyone...
