[Emerald] RadiusNT - problem with TimeBanking - very big value for Session Timeout

I am running RadiusNT 2.5.267 along with Emerald 2.5 using a SQL Server 6.5

I configured several services and made some Service Defaults for them,
namely :

1. ServiceType = Framed
2. Framed Protocol = PPP
3. Session Timeout = 0

I then enabled TimeBanking and gave several users several minutes in their
TimeLeft field. The problem is, no one gets disconnected after their
TimeLeft has elapsed.

I inspected the Log file and saw that RadiusNT is sending a SessionTimeout =
0 to the NAS.

Is this the way RadiusNT is supposed to work ?

I tried deleting the SessionTimeout from the service defaults and tried
dialling in as TimeBanked user. This time, the SessionTimeout attribute it
sent the NAS is the remaining value of TimeLeft. However, the user still
won't get disconnected from the NAS.

My NAS is a Cisco 2600 and its debug output does not show anything funny.

However, I noticed that when the NON-TimeBanked users, RadiusNT sends them a
SessionTimeout whose value is 679952640.

What could be wrong ?
