Realm attribute population

Alan, implies that after v2.1.9, "%{Realm}" would contain "DEFAULT", not whatever the realm extracted from User-Name was, when used in logging... Hence my question. 

Of course, if this is no longer an issue, then I'll happily amend our instructions to leave the DEFAULT realm as-is. Also, when I wrote "DEFAULT {}", it was a shortening (for the sake of brevity) of: 

realm DEFAULT { 
   authhost = blah
   etc etc etc

I was just trying to save some lines and extraneous text here.
