thanks for the quick response!

In the meantime I tried the new EAP_UseState,  didn't fix the problem
but also didn't have any negative effect. Do you recommend to already
use it?

Disabling EAP session resumption seems to have fixed the issue
(EAPTLS_SessionResumption 0).

I would have to force the errors again by reenabling EAP session
resumption which I'd rather like not to do.

So it should be safe to use it in EAP specific hooks like
EAPTLS_CertificateVerifyHook and PostAuthHook in Handler that check for

I've changed:

my $context =  $p->{EAPContext};


my $self = $p->{AuthBy};
my $context = ($main::config->{EAP_UseState})
     ? $self->getEAPContextState($p, $code, $type)
     : $self->getEAPContext($p);

as seen in EAP.pm. Should I always call getEAPContext instead? If the
above is required I'd advice to add a method doing that to EAP.pm.
The problem with getEAPContextState is that I don't have $code and $type
in my hook.
