Auth-Type = Reject not 'working'

the recent post mentioning Auth-Type = System reminded me....
if I've got a Auth-Type = Reject int he users file, then when making
a request with a remote RADIUS client, then the request times
out when freeradius is running as a normal process daemon... on
Fedora, this is running as a service with the '-y' option...
however, this timeout is variable..and sometimes...just sometimes
it works. 

however, when running freeradius is debug mode, with -X, the Reject
reply message is pretty fast...though still a lot slower than an 
Access-Accept message for a valid user - even though the valid user
is in a database or a kerberos check. I assumed that a Auth-Type := Reject
was an instant hit, with no further procedures...  why then, when run
in debug mode, does FreeRADIUS happily reject the client request but
when run as a normal process, it throws the request towards other
Auth mechanisms?
