Here's some feedback that may be useful (I could not find any in the mailing archives or on GitHub).

FreeRADIUS 3.0.11 got blocked three times (requiring a restart) with this issue within 24 hours (after that it was rolled back to 3.0.8).
After installing 3.0.x HEAD (18cc48e2d8fcd533e06eefaa5d81d4a96d01532e), it did not happen again. So I confirm that the issue is indeed fixed.

So, a word of advice, if you're using the linelog module and considering deploying FreeRADIUS 3.0.11 on production: *don't*. Upgrade to the 3.0.x HEAD.
