I’m seeing a lot of crashes after upgrading to the NR packaged versions of FreeRADIUS 3.0.23:

Tue Jul  6 03:46:10 2021 : Auth: (145) Login OK: [anonymous at realm] (from client roaming1 port 0 cli 70-6F-6C-69-73-68)
Bad talloc magic value - unknown value

talloc abort: Bad talloc magic value - unknown value

Tue Jul  6 03:46:24 2021 : Info: Debugger not attached
Tue Jul  6 03:46:24 2021 : Info: systemd watchdog is disabled

3.0.22 ran nicely, but now I’m concerned about 50 crashes with the above message since 3am this morning... Any ideas, gents? *looks at Arran, Alan and Matthew expectantly*

I’ve rolled back manually to 3.0.22 as a precaution.

With Kind Regards
