  The default configuration doesn't do that.  The
"copy-acct-to-home-server" file doesn't do that, either.

  You edited the configuration, and made it write authentication packets

  I don't know what that means.  But it has nothing to do with the
problem noted above.

  Configure it to write only accounting packets to the detail file.
