Unfortunately, I think this is the nature of RadiusNT v2.5
when using Access97.... it explodes in size... constantly...
not sure if this is a bug.

Our RadiusNT v2.5 database grows very rapidly and has to
be compacted at least once a day... it doubles... and
triples in size... every 24 hours... debugging is off.

Although, we never had this problem under RadiusNT v1.6.

Usually, it'll be recommended for you to buy MS SQL
server... and run it with RadiusNT.
