problem with "#" in username

I want to replace our old radius server with freeradius and it seems that
freeradius has all the features we need - great work! We are using
freeradius 1.0.2-4 from debian unstable with a PostgreSQL database for
users and logging.
My problem is that some of our usernames contain a "#", for example
"test#in at realm". Freeradius receives this username and logs it to
radius.log, but it logs "Auth: Login incorrect". When I turn on statement
logging in PostgreSQL, I can see, that freeradius sends a select query to
PostgreSQL with "test=23in at realm" as the username instead of
"test#in at realm".
When I change the username to "test=23in at realm" in the database table, I
get "Auth: Login OK", although the client still sends "test#in at realm" as
the username and freeradius logs "test#in at realm" in radius.log.
Is this a bug in freeradius?
