I found a similar limitation in a commercial RADIUS server I was testing
against.  Any given person could have only one challenge outstanding at a
time.  When I tried to login the same test must-challenge user on two
different terminals at the same time, only one of them ever got in.  I had
designed and written my own intermediary server that could handle this case,
so I was disappointed to find out that my effort was for naught. The
protocol spec was silent on whether this case had to be implemented.
