Hi David,

Pavel Brezina (CC-ed) would know for sure as he wrote the sudo
integration, but I think the trick could be to force the rules refresh
to run more often, as you noted, detecting the removed rules. 

I'd suggest to lower the entry_cache_sudo_timeout to make the rules expire
faster which would trigger the rules refresh which, if it detected rules
were removed would trigger the full refresh.

Currently there's no config option that would tie login and rules
refresh update.
