  All attributes are defined by name.  Whether it's a RFC attribute or a VSA doesn't make any difference.

  The "ls" command is only looking at the current directory.  It's not doing a recursive search.

  You should really be using 3.0.21.  It has a number of fixes with respect to systemd.

  The default configuration doesn't have "dictionary.nokia19.txt""

  Someone edited the dictionary and broke it.  Don't do that.

  Revert to the default dictionaries, and it will work.
