Weird. That's what I get for each call to mschapv2 functions.

Yeah it will be the same.

Well I can't tell. In my last servers running v2 I didn't implement the short-circuit logic, so the ldap module is called on every packets (those were my first freeradius server and the config is horrible)

Well I implemented the cache module as I had before, but maybe this could be an enhancement for a future release (either in then server core or through a policy using rlm_cache)
