Description (partial)

This is incorrect behavior for 802.1x sessions when using critical vlan with reinitialize feature.

According to the command reference for "authentication event server dead action reinitialize vlan xx" command after receiving server dead event (radius not responding) all the current sessions should be reinitialized and put in critical vlan.

But that will not occur. Reinitialization will occur only when the session had period reauthentication configured and only after that timer expires.
