Ah I remember this. It's because rad_authenticate calls rad_postauth if 
authentication succeeds, but relies on request_finish to call 
rad_postauth in the case of failure.

I did think about this myself; one option is to call rad_postauth 
manually if rad_authenticate(fake) fails in peap.c - which I guess is 
the easy/obvious solution you're referring to? Certainly preferable to 
the current situation IMO.

The "Post-Auth-Type REJECT" stuff did originally live in 
rad_authenticate - it was removed in commit 47a090897a. Not sure what 
the rationale was - something to do with reject_delay? - so I was 
unwilling to fiddle. Alan, can you comment?
