That should be

     flags = can_flood;

in the auth {} block.

If you have the rehash flag and are opered up, you can just use the  
/rehash command.

The config file supplied by Debian in /etc in that package is _not_  
based on the ircd-hybrid config file - they seem to have taken it from  
another similar ircd like ratbox.

See the example configs in /usr/share/doc/ircd-hybrid/examples/ -  
those are the ones from the hybrid source, and show the right syntax.
