IEEE802.1x query

 I'm running a wireless network with two hostAP-based access points. Thet
two APs are in the same subnet and have the same essid too. I am able to
authenticate a client successfully using IEEE802.1x via any of the APs.
Now, when i force a handoff by manually changing the APs, there is no
re-authentication but the client is still able to access the network via
the new AP. I'm wondering if this is normal or something is wrong in my
setup. Any ideas ?
