This is a good reason to use unlang rather than realm. "realm" is 
designed for proxying, always gets it list of realms from "proxy.conf" 
and sets the control:Proxy-To-Realm attribute.

You also may not realise that user at undefined realm will set:

   Stripped-User-Name = use
   Realm = DEFAULT

i.e. the Realm value does *not* preserve the text after the @.

Your original problem (crazy loop) occurred because the DEFAULT realm 
you defined in proxy.conf was pointing somewhere else - probably back at 
the very same radius server, resulting in an infinite loop.
