This has not changed between 1.3 and 2.0.  suexec always requires all
non-userdir files to be under a compile-time configured document root.
 It must just be that the docrot you had configured for 1.3 contained
all the directories.  You can recompile suexec to set its docroot to
/home.  But of course, this is dangerous because it means suexec can
execute anything under that directory.
