Thank you for the explanations!
What do you think? It could be possible to make radius deal with such 
situations(larger than 253 octets attributes)? If you think it is, I 
would like to give it a try.
In case it is possible, may you tell me please what part of the source 
code should I give attention in order to solve this.

Thank you!
