CSCtr43448 - service selection doesnand39;t work all the time when using tacacs username

FYI this bug is not fixed as of 5.4.  ACS handles incoming user-based rules for service selection for telnet.  If you use SSH (which everyone should if available), ACS cannot reliably determine the username due to it not always being included in the 1st packet.  ACS would just have to wait for the 2nd packet to get the full username for this to work.

Instead of fixing this product defect, Cisco decided to make it a documentation change. 

The workaround is to place a duplicate of your user-based rules under each Device Administration Authorization Policy -- very inconvenient if you have many rules like we do.

I think ACS should handle telnet and SSH sessions identically.
