What version of RadiusNT are you using? You can find out with "-v".
You might upgrade to 2.5.162 and see if the problem still exists.
Otherwise run RadiusNT in -x15 debug mode and see what the debug
shows while its taking up all the CPU time.

One thing to try is make sure TrimName is enabled in the RadiusNT
