This is a known problem with the MS Access ODBC driver. When the
becomes large or fragmented, it can either corrupt data, or cause the
ODBC driver to crash. Since the ODBC driver runs in the process of
RadiusNT, it takes RadiusNT down with it. The function SQLConvertString
is a function in the MS Access ODBC driver, not RadiusNT.

The best thing to do is compact your database regularly. If the problem
persists, you might look into useing a more robust database like
SQL Server.
