2.8.1 implemented front-side nonces (along with a number of other security updates). This was placed in because there are some users that have had issues with registration spam.
Unfortunately, this creates a problem for users who have cache plugins. This is because if a cached page is served up, it is likely that the nonce is already expired or otherwise invalid, which would disallow the form submission.
In 2.8.2, I have implemented some improvements to the use of nonces. But I am also making it an optional element that will be off by default. That way, it will be there for those users that need it and off for everyone else.
