  Why?  What's wrong with the "dictionary.extreme" file that is included
with the server?

  After 10 years of doing FreeRADIUS, I *still* don't understand why
many people feel the need to destroy the default configuration as soon
as they install the server.

  It's a bug in 2.1.7.  If you used the *default* dictionaries, the VSAs
would work, and there wouldn't be a problem.

  Stop destroying the default configuration.  If you did *less* work,
you would have *better* results.
