   I mean that you should pay attention to how your comments come across.  They are borderline rude.

  Your comment was "please ensure(from code) radiusd is not crashing"  My answer is "yes, we know already that the server isn't supposed to crash".

  If the server crashes, it's a bug, and we'll fix it.  We have been _very_ clear on that subject for the past 20 years.  We've said so on this list many times.  We do _not_ need someone to tell us this.

  We have hundreds of tests to ensure that the server  *doesn't* crash when it gets unknown attributes.  We have hundreds of tests to ensure that the server deals with all kinds of bizarre corner cases.  If we missed a case, we will add a test.

  If you find a crash, you can open a bug report.  You should include enough information that we can easily reproduce the issue.  We can then add tests to be sure that the issue doesn't come back.

>> The current "master" branch has no such messages at line 883 or 3050.  Please ensure that you're running the latest branch.  The code in "master" changes a lot.  So it's not productive for us to track down issues which may have already been fixed months ago.

  That should help.
