Actually I really don't think it's the load in itself. The Filter is
used by a lot of people in large settings. I think it's something that
the filter relies on that is failing. For example if WINS returns a
list of DCs and then the next time returns and empty list that would
cause exactly the error you recieved. That shouldn't be able to happen
and I can fix that but I'm not certain just stress testing with a lot
of clients is going to yield the results you're looking for.

When I apply the fix for 1.1.5 I recommend just running that in production
as the particular error you received will not be possible.
