It is designed to work like this. In our opinion (and also the WISP
draft) the user should only be accounted for the time actually being
online.

Assume this situation: users goes online at 00:00 and gets logged-off at
00:30. This would normally be a session-time of 30minutes. BUT if your
idle-timeout is 10minutes and idle-timeout is the cause of the log-off
the NAS will only send 20minutes as session-time. It doesn't take the
hard-timeout,idle-timeout into account.

I know about this 'issue'. It will be fixed in a next version, no ETA
(it already is in SVN) but I'm currently way to busy at my work with
different stuff.

Kind Regards,
