Replacing the BucketMap with another Map implementation solves the problem
of Cocoon failing at high load (where the ECM fails to look up a Selector, 
not the Selector looking up a handler). It does not cure the warning
message above.

You can deal with the warning by adding a 'pool-max="512"' to the
<map:pipes> section of the sitemap. But I fear this is just a workaround,
