My code, but as usual I blame Arran for pulling it into v2 ;-P

Untested, but at a quick glance it's probably just changing line
1984 in event.c from

  fun = rad_authenticate


  fun = rad_virtual_server

rad_authenticate used to call rad_postauth internally on a
success, but not failure (IIRC it was that way around), and the
failure case was called from event.c - this meant that inner
tunnel fake requests only saw it for one and not both. The new
rad_virtual_server just makes sure it's called for both, and the
"if accept {postauth}" code got pulled from rad_authenticate.

There's probably no reason why rad_virtual_server can't be
substituted wherever rad_authenticate appears, and then
rad_postauth pulled out from anywhere else it's hiding
(essentially just removing event.c:2453 and event.c:2478-2480).
That should tidy it up a bit, and make things more consistent.

I think this was all tidied and fixed in 3.0, but I can't remember
off the top of my head.
