2.0.7 fixed this.

Works here:

Nov 16 17:26:25 auth: Info: Authentication cache hits 0/2 (0%)
Nov 16 17:26:25 auth: Info: Authentication cache inserts: positive: 2 95B, negative: 0 0B

So .. Since SIGHUP works, I don't really know. They should be using
exactly the same code right next to each others. I guess something could
disable SIGUSR2 somewhere somehow. What passdb/userdb do you use?
