I think you hit at least a part of the problem.

'\r' in strings messes up a (s)print(f) somewhere. '\r' is Carriage
Return and output gets overwritten from the start of the line.
Occasionally I get bitten by this when processing windows files quick
and dirty and forgetting about this.

Arnaud, have you tried to clean up the 'User-Name' Attribute like

$RAD_REQUEST{User-Name} =~ s/[\d\w@#._-]//g;
