[Chilli] Mac auth & idle timeout

I was testing out coova ap, mac auth and macreauth url, and everything seems to work.
But I found something strange about Idle-Timeout. The Mac user I configured just has the Auth-Type Accept option, and I had set the default idle timeout in CoovaAP config to 600s. The problem is that after that exact time the mac is disconnected, even if it's accessing the internet, and even if on the coovaap web panel I see the idle time much lower than the limit!

Also, when I disconnect the device from the AP the session remains open. with ChilliSpot it used to disconnect the user once it received the dhcp release. 

So far I only tried with an android 4 phone.
