In RFC3414 PAGE 27
7) If the securityLevel indicates an authenticated message, then the
local values of snmpEngineBoots, snmpEngineTime and
latestReceivedEngineTime corresponding to the value of the
msgAuthoritativeEngineID field are extracted from the Local
Configuration Datastore.

a) If the extracted value of msgAuthoritativeEngineID is the same
as the value of snmpEngineID of the processing SNMP engine
(meaning this is the authoritative SNMP engine), then if any
of the following conditions is true, then the message is
considered to be outside of the Time Window:

- the local value of snmpEngineBoots is 2147483647;

- the value of the msgAuthoritativeEngineBoots field differs
from the local value of snmpEngineBoots; or,

- the value of the msgAuthoritativeEngineTime field differs
from the local notion of snmpEngineTime by more than +/- 150

The time window should be +/- 150 seconds by local notion of snmpEngineTime.
So the msg_authoritative_engine_time check should be as follow:
1050: if (request->msg_authoritative_engine_time > (time + 150))
