*Delete previous comment*.. on second though it sounds like it is not a backend problem but more of a problem in the central blocklist module itself. I will replicate your setup and do some tests later today :)

Heheh, it also has a nice effect on the client. After 10 seconds it will floods the "The server requires clients from this IP address to authenticate with a registered nickname and password" and "Please reconnect using SASL, or authenticate now by typing: /QUOTE AUTH nick:password" message to the client every 1 second.
Ok not a big flood, 1 per second, but rather silly :)

    Fix "Central blocklist too slow to respond" message when using softban
    or require authentication { } block.
    And the connecting user would get a message every second, which was
    a bit floody ;D.
