Up to here everything is ok! Now hostapd shutdown. I dont know why - i think
you pressed STRG+C.

OK lets talk about RADIUS. If a authenticator starts, it can sent a
Accounting-On message to a radius server. It says only that the NAS
boots up and are ready to connect users to it. Therefor it contains no
user data. Your radius server seams to expect a session start packet
which starts a session for a user. Therefor the first 3 warnings in the
radius log. This is only a bad configured radius server and no bug of
hostapd.

If you don't pressed STRG+c please start hostapd with more debug in
hostapd.conf (debug or message dump) and send it to the mailing list.
