Insufficient Space to Store Pair string

   Hi Alan,

   I was thinking the same "Don't log EAP-Message" , but not sure how I
   remove that attribute before logging , can I delete the EAP-Message
   attribute from linelog module somehow and log everything else. I think
   that will solve the problem.

   Many Thanks

   The linelog module has a hard-coded buffer of 2K. If you need more,
   either edit the source, or change your requirements.

   Don't log EAP-Message. It's all encrypted SSL stuff, and has zero value
   to anyone.
   i.e. if your political requirements conflict with the technical
   limitations, reality should win.
