I seem to be getting some accounting records from my Ascends that do not
include the User-Name attribute (I think they are dropped connections or
some type of report from the Ascend.)  I have my handlers setup to only
take requests from usernames that are valid as I seem to get a lot of
"garbage" requests from misbehaving units and I don't want to even parse
them.  But I would like to log the Ascend logs that come in, but they
never match any handler I have as no User-Name attribute is in there. What
I'd like to do is create a handler that works with these records. Will the
following make a match on a request where NO User-Name attribute is sent
or will it only match a User-Name attribute that exists, but is empty?

<Handler Realm="", User-Name="">

I can't seem to find another attribute in the record that is unique to it
and isn't included in a "good" looking accounting request.  Any thoughts
are appreciated on how I can handle these.
