If RadiusNT is in text mode, it dumps all the attributes to the detail
file for that NAS. If RadiusNT is in ODBC mode, it *ONLY* records the
attributes which match the field names in the calls table. This is
clearly outlined in the RadiusNT documentation (including how to
update it).

If you are running in debug mode, all the attributes do get stored.
Howeber, this is NOT what you want to do. The debug is not meant to
be a parseable output and you will take a severe performance hit with
debug enabled.
