Yeah well,

problem can be reproduced very easily:

login at a hotspot ... close your browser ...

open up another browser and got to the auth servers login page ...

login again ...

access denied ...

now you won't be able to surf the web at all ...

message of the gateway:

Auth: 0
Messages: | Tried to login with a token that wasn't TOKEN_UNUSED.

Solution should be:

If a user with a token in use tries to login again and the MAC  
matches with the one of the token in use the auth server shouldn't  
send a denied message because this will cause the gateway to block  
the access to the internet ... resulting in the user gotta wait for  
minutes to be able to login again ...

Resolving that bug should be a high priority as it happened quite  
often the last weeks ...

I try to check the code but would be very happy if you guys could  
help me resolving that bug ...

Thanks and cheers, Max
