It's being used for incorrect logins and other information, and we had a
web page that pierced that file when a customer called with a problem.
Now, we have to look at both files to see the errors/information.

That's why I was asking if there was a way to have both radius.log files
sync'd like it was with Cistron.  How did it stay sync'd in Cistron?
Was it the radrelay program?  If so, I guess I could do some hacking on
that program to satisfy our needs.
