What you should do is look at the raw incoming packets and see what is 
actually happening. There are several ways to do this: e.g. you can 
configure the "detail" module to log the accounting packets as they come 
in to a text file, or at worst use tcpdump (e.g. tcpdump -i eth0 -nn -s0 
-v udp port 1813)

As a guess: maybe the NAS is sending an Interim-Update but your SQL 
configuration treats it as Stop?

An Interim-Update packet gives usage so far on a still-active session.
