  Well, I'm wondering if this is in a clustered configuration i.e. multiple
nodes handling the load and cooperating (sharing data such as IP pools). If this
is the case I'd be interested to know a few accounts to find out more about
their architecture (behind freeradius such as database servers, etc). Any clues? I'd
really like o create some sort of standard architecture for freeradius that can scale
and is reliable and have it in a "real" environment for a while for others to have
confidence when making this same decision that I'm about to make.

  I have compared my version with that of the CVS root and apart form some small
differences that I'll investigate further I noticed that it has the same bug that
I found. The problem is that I don't know how to report it. Can you help? Also I
think it'd be a good idea to back-port it to 1.1.x. Who decides this and how do I
express my interest?

  Thank you!
