How did you determine that was the problem?  Did you do a debug?

I found the problem it was nothing to do with the "aaa authentication" 

The router was timing out the radius server before it could receive the fail

By increasing the Radius server timeout it waited longer for a response from

the server and received a fail message and not and error message.

Radius-server timeout 15 (default is 5 sec)
