i'm currently use release 3.0.8 of freeradius and I'm not sure if this
issue is already been resolved.

I currently configured my freeradius server with a buffered-sql server.

On my environment sometimes I receive a strange Username that write
wrong message on detail file like this:

Mon Oct 10 22:15:11 2016
        Packet-Type = Accounting-Request
        NAS-IP-Address =
        NAS-Identifier = 'GGSN-XX1'
        Called-Station-Id = 'apn.freeradius.org'
        Framed-Protocol = GPRS-PDP-Context
        Service-Type = Framed-User
        NAS-Port-Type = Virtual
        Calling-Station-Id = '22222222002222'
        Acct-Status-Type = Start
        Framed-IP-Address =
        Acct-Session-Id = 'D9C8B3C3B9353FB4'
        User-Name = '

        Acct-Session-Time = 0
        Acct-Authentic = RADIUS
        Acct-Delay-Time = 0
        Acct-Multi-Session-Id = '57FBF6CF0000013C222013200038833F'
        Proxy-State = 0x3136
        Proxy-State = 0x3837
        Timestamp = 1476130511

As you can see Username string is written wrong and when file is
processed from detail job to load record on database I have two
different problem:

case 1) accounting is written correctly but Username is not resolve and
an empty string is sent. I resolve temporary this with a fake string to
identify this problem.

case 2) currently I see that thread for parse detail file and call
database is blocked. I see just record before this error packet
"Donestamp" field and then nothing.

Is already open this issue or is already resolve with a fresh version ?

I'm not sure that this is a false issue. I see that from RFC 2865
permit all UTF-8 chars so it seems a valid scenario this where I
receive CRCR chars on User-Name field.

Thanks in advance.
