hostapd never timeouts when reauthentication takes place

I am having a problem with the hostapd eap reauthentication. I am using the
integrated eap server with the EAP-TLS authentication method. I have noticed
that, when reathentication is done, the hostapd sends an EAPOL-REQUEST
Identity packet. The problem is that, if in the other size no one responds
to this packet, the hostapd doesn't pass to the TIMEOUT STATE and the port
is still AUTHORIZED. I have been searching in the code, and I have found
that the EAP state machine doesn't take care of timeouts (this task is left
to the EAPOL STATE MACHINE), but the EAPOL STATE MACHINE never puts the
eapTimeout variable to TRUE. Is this normal? I am missing something?
Thanks in advance
