  This question is better suited for the developers list, as you're looking at the server internals.

  Probably because it's being created incorrectly.

  Yes, that works.

  That works, too.

  No, you get a pointer to the VALUE_PAIR.

  You shouldn't look at the internal fields of a DICT_ATTR unless you need to do that.  The "garbage" value you're referring to is a real value which has meaning.  Go read src/lib/dict.c for explanations.

  The problem seems to be that you're not creating the attribute properly.  Since you didn't include that code here, I can't tell what you're doing wrong.
