these errors are solely because the RADIUS doesnt get a response
from your eDirectory fast enough. please also note there is no
1.6 or 1.7 release.  its 1.1.6 and 1.1.7  (theres a vast difference
when people start throwing random numbers around).  if things
workes with 1.1.3 you need to check your config and logs to
find out why 1.1.6/1.1.7 arent as spritely. how often are
you talking to eDirectory? are you really needing to check pre-auth,
auth and post-auth for example?  are you relying on some MySQL
or postgres accounting?  It may well be that the eDirectory is
100% fine but the hold-up is with accounting packet handling.
or, more obviously, more people are using your service and you dont
have enough RADIUS threads running to handle the requests as you only
have eg 10 threads and they are already busy talking to eDirectory
as fast as they can
