I had a similar problem, but not on this scale.  I noticed that for each 
login to my hiperarc, I got 2 starts and 2 stops when the user logged 
out.  I fixed this by not setting any accounting secondary_servers.  I 
ended up setting my primary server and the first backup to the primary 
server and leaving the rest of the accounting fields at 0.0.0.0.  Since I 
have 2 radiators, this works well.
