Clients timing out / Auth ticket cancelled on map changes

I’m unsure if this is related to the recent update but it’s been a minor issue for some time but seems substantially worse post-update. Normally 1-2 players drop out on a map change to the above error, their GMod shuts fully without any notice/warning and they are forced to load it up again and rejoin.

Specifically after today’s update I noticed 30 people drop out on a map change and thats definitely new and extreme. It was on a pretty vanilla prophunt server running only a few addons (ps2, ulx plus a few others).

Anyone got any advice on how to reduce this from happening?

Same here on my servers, suddenly started to happen after i updated the server, i am very sure its related.

I believe it may have been fixed in the hotfix last night, haven’t been playing enough to be sure though.
