RadiusNT must receive the first accounting start record BEFORE it
the second authentication to prevent concurrency control. If Both auths
comes through before the first accounting, then they get two channels.
However, if you include the Port-Limit = 1 in the authentication, then
terminal server can prevent the second channel from bonding. Therefore,
you need both to be completely effective.

If you don't include the Port-limit attribute, the terminal server
doesn't have a clue about their limit, and can therefore do nothing
about it.
