I posted about this a couple days ago. The USR likes to reuse
the Acct-Session-ID value fairly quickly, which causes duplicate
accounting records. Since the duplicates don't get inserted into
the database, the callsonline doesn't get updated.

The easiest way to correct this is to modify the primary key of
your calls table and add username to the primary key.
