It's probably hitting 1024 or 2048, the maximum line length in a config file stanza.

Can you use the netmasking feature to aggregate them? (DE:AD:BE:00:00:00/FF:FF:FF:00:00:00)

In newcore, you can have multiple filter_* lines and they're all parsed together (or at least, I expect that to be the behavior, as I write this I'm not sure I ever tested it...) In stable the filter system isn't properly abstracted so this would be difficult to backport...
