Symptoms

When you run a Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0-based application that calls the System.Globalization.CultureInfo.GetCultures method, a System.InvalidOperationException exception may be generated, and the application crashes. Additionally, you receive the following error message in this situation: 

Hashtable insert failed. Load factor too high.


Cause

This issue occurs because of a race condition in a hash table.

Note When the CultureInfo.GetCultures method is called, a CultureTable object uses the hash table.
