Look, you can make a solution that will work for this specific case. And
then you get a new AP that sends the mac address with different
delimiters. Or even worse - no delimiters at all. What then?
Don't go the route that will fail you in the future. Create a solution
that will work. Every time and with every equipment. That means creating
additionl user entry where username will be mac address; mac address in
the database shouldn't have delimiters (both as usernames and ones
stored as calling station ids in user profile); you should rewrite mac
adress format(s) matching usernames and calling station ids and strip
out delimiters from them in hints file. That's what you should do.
