I assume that radius is out of your control?

Running in debugging mode, or at least looking at FR logs, might show
you what's happening. I suspect the home server is taking a long time
processing acct packets. This is somewhat common if (for example) the
home server uses database for acct, with lots of rows and index, an
slow disks, in such a way that writes/updates takes a long time. This
is just a guess though, more info should be available from the log.
