Question is, why would Radius crash to begin with on a long username? Or
does it for that matter? I found when I ran text mode it would puke all the
time, but when I went straight ODBC it worked fine for awhile, then puke. I
turned on Trim Name, seems ok now :/
Either way something is wrong with 2.5, because 2.3 worked fine.
