A word of warning with the username, if your using EAP then the username
is also sent within the EAP tunnel. If the username sent in the eap 
tunnel and the username sent in the access request packet don't match, 
then the user will be rejected.

So if you rewrite the username at the proxying server, be sure to have 
the relevant hint on the home_server to rewrite the username back into 
it's original form :)

And sorry your were having problems, I forgot the : in the 
Proxy-To-Realm. :(
