  The debian packages rename the server from "radiusd" to "freeradius".
 In an effort to simplify the configuration, and remove extra patches,
we've added a "name=radiusd" configuration entry.  That name is now used
(almost) everywhere, in preference to hard-coded "radiusd".

  The patch you supplied changes "${name}.pid" to "".
Instead, it should change the "name=radiusd" to "name=freeradius" line.

  There are a number of other references to ${name}, so changing that
one reference will fix all of the others.
