Just a bit more info.
While i have a duplicate session open if i dump the mnesia session
table there are two entries in there.
I am checking this with "ets:tab2list(session)." in debug.

Is it allowed to have duplicate connection with the same resource?

All connections are coming from a single SNAT address at the moment as
well, could this be causing issues?
