Ok, I'll look into it, thanks.

I probably haven't phrased my question clear enough. I wanted to ask 
about preferred strategies of dealing with data consistency at the 
db-level of the radius-based setup - is it better to run some procedure 
on the startup, as I'm going to do, or one can just setup some 
periodical checks, or to use radzap as you're suggested, or may be there 
are some other methods/strategies experienced guys use I'm not aware of ?

Thanks, Sergey.
