That's intentional, but you can restore the old phpBB2 behavior by
defining WITHOUT_ANTI_SESSIONTAB_DOS_PATCH=yes when building the port,
which removes the local patch that addresses a DoS problem.
(Unfortunately the phpBB2 2.0.x captcha implementation opens another
DoS issue, but finally we end up to make the patch a default but
optional feature so you can decide whether to use it :-)
