  Fix your scripts so that they don't block the server.

When the user types the password successfully everything works fine - the client gets an OK and none of the hung request errors show up.

  The default configuration doesn't have this issue.  Access-Requests
can be proxied.  Access-Rejects can be returned through a proxy to a client.

  The debug log shows nothing interesting.

  The most probable issue is that your scripts are blocking the server.
 Fix that.

  You can verify this by configuring a test system *without* your
scripts.  Or a test user, which bypasses the scripts.  It will work.
