  I have a fix I'll be committing tomorrow.

  Last week it was slower than 1.x.  It's now about 20% faster.

  It still needs fixes to properly handle HUP.

  Other server software I've looked at doesn't really handle HUP.
Apache has a master process that forks off child processes.  On HUP, all
the children exit, and the master forks off new children.

  In RADIUS, we have state we have to maintain, (request/response
packets).  So the Apache approach won't work.  This makes any solution
much more difficult.
