No, as you explain to me the intended purpose (I've not noticed, at 
first glance, the default parameter at 5000 ms, which implies it was for 
another use).

> What exactly wasn't working in which version that you tested?

Iddle-Session : when a user goes inactive (i.e. don't access to new web 
site pages during Radius Iddle-Session value (in sec)), chilli 
disconnect the user.

1.0.7 : work
1.0.11 : don't work
1.0.12-pre (svn) : work

I've notice that using Ajax (*), with a 60 sec refresh status don't 
disturb this (i.e. the inactive user is really disconnect after 600 sec 
idling while there is an Ajax access each 60 seconds...

I wonder why... Could you explain, if aware ?

No choice, and I trust the work done :)
With, at my side, the 1.0.7 in backup.

(*) Ajax is used for a status window, via a subpart of hotcakes - we 
don't use hotcakes as we have created our own management panel, but my 
Ajax understanding is quite low and I have no time now to make my own 
implementation (but it's planned, in order to wake the whole part 
lighter - and understand Ajax too !).
