dialup admin - problem with users

I searched the archives briefly, but I wasn't sure how to even phrase 
this issue.  I have Freeradius authenticating Chillispot through a MySQL 
DB.  One of the features of Chillispot is to authenticate based on MAC 
address first before checking username.  This sends the MAC as Username 
and a pre-determined password.  I have this working fine, but the 
problem is that Dialup Admin will not accept usernames with "dashes" in 
them.  Every time I try to edit a user like "00-0E-35-A8-25-9F", it 
changes the name to "000E35A8259F" which of course does not exist.  
Anyone know of a quick fix for this?  If not, I will send some patches 
for this and a few other problems I found with Dialup Admin.  I just 
hate delving into a project like this when there is the possibility of a 
fix existing.
