Very nasty hack, but you could always exec a script as part of
authorize that calls radclient to send the coa and wait for a
response. The script will need to make sure it times out quickly
if it doens't receive an answer, and exec like this isn't very
fast so if you've got a lot of auths/s then it'll bog the server
down, but it should work.
