Have you documented somewhere what is your intended policy with strings?
Does it affect all strings (as in xlat expanded in configuration *and*
string radius attribute values)? 

I can see that string attributes get escaped in the debug output as
well, so I guess you un-escape/escape strings in both input and output,
