[Chilli] Forcing chilli to recheck RADIUS

Ok.  I tried both the macreauth URL and the --macreauth command line
option.  The problem I am having is that the user is still redirected
to the splash and login pages.  It looks like it checks RADIUS, but
doesn't wait for the reply and does the redirect.  On the second
request it sees that they are authorized and then allows them through.
 Being redirected back to the login page after they had already
completed it would be confusing to the users.  Is there a way around

If the splash page had a way to know they had been authorized, then it
could redirect to userurl instead of loginurl.  The splash pages gets
res=notyet though, so I don't see any way for it to know they were
authorized during the redirect.
