Some client sends value + \0 character at the end of the attribute
Calling-Station-Id (e.g. 421945411479\0 ).

I am trying to fix / workaround this issue via unlang (in pre-proxy

update {
  &proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id :=

Debug output:
update {
(0)       EXPAND %{string:&proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id}
(0)          --> 421945411479
(0)       &proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id := 421945411479
(0)     } # update = noop

Is it good approach ?

I have tried also fix it via following peace of unlang code (doesnt work):

if (&proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id && &proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id
=~ /([0-9]+)/) {
  update {
    &proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id := "%{0}"

Debug ouput:
if (&proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id && &proxy-request:Calling-Station-Id
=~ /([0-9]+)/) {
(0)     ERROR: regex failed: Found null in subject at offset 12.  String
unsafe for evaluation
(0)     ERROR: Failed retrieving values required to evaluate condition

Could you please give me advice how to add \0 character at the end of the
attribute value, if i want to send (test request) via radclient ?

Thank you very much.
