  Then why are you running the server in debugging mode, with output
goind to STDOUT?

  I don't understand what you're trying to do.  You want the output to
go to STDOUT for debugging, AND to go to radiusd.log?  Why?  Even
that's possible with a simple Unix command:

$ radiusd -X | tee /var/log/radius.log

  This should do what you want.  But again, why are you using '-x' if
you want the output to go to radius.log?  What are you doing with the
text being printed to stdout?
