thank you for your answer. that might just be it! :-) i have a test 
client also programmed by a colleague, that starts a number of threads (for
each authorization one) that in the beginning wait for a semaphore. after
all threads are ready, the semapfore is switched to green and all
authorization requests are sent in a burst. maybe it needs some tuning.. 
anyway, do you know any radius eap-sim test clients that work for sure?
