  Actually, in my situation I know that realm will always be an IP
address.  However when using the "realm DEFAULT {}" configuration, I
want the Realm variable to be set to the IP address, but instead, it
appears to be set to the word "DEFAULT".  So I am asking what is a way
to overcome this bug (or feature, I'm still not sure which it is.)
