that's right - acc_rad_missed() will generate one record and a second 
one will be by acc_rad_reply(). But as in your scenario it's about a 
transaction with a negative response (408), the acc_rad_reply() should 
generate the record *only* if the failed_transaction_flag is set.

I just reproduce your scenario - a timeout on server - using radius 
accounting and I got only one record (as missed call).

What I noticed to be strange for radius is that the missed and 
accounting records looks identical. For syslog there is text suffix, for 
DB different table are used, but for radius is the same. Mainly because 
the the reason phrase is not included into the radius request.

anyhow, I'm still not able to reproduce your problem......:(
