Failover stability?

I'm just wondering what the state is of master/slave peer failover. Is
failover stable enough to be used in a production environment now? 

I've been testing using 3.0.4 one one subnet  and I'm running into a
scenario where the master load balances a request to the slave. The
slave then ignores the request and logs a "peer holds all free leases"
message. I've been reading through the mailing list archives and
indications are that these problems are supposed to be resolved in 3.0.4
but that doesn't seem to be the case.
