right now there is no exception handling around the DNS resolving. it should be, and this is why such small errors lead to a full crash - this will be fixed.

however, what i don't understand is why this only occurs on your server - xShunter is used by 3 communities running several servers and none of them is having such issues. could you by any chance find out what kind of players is causing this? if not then we have to wait until you run into trouble again with the next version, it will have logging about it and show us which kind of IP addresses cause such exceptions.
