Servu caches user information for a while (Default is 1200 seconds).

You can set how long to hang on to cached data by setting CacheLife =
(seconds) in the EmerAuth section of the registry.

My servu (...2.4a) lists home directory as '/'. As far as I know emerauth
doesen't have control over displaying such things.
