You were einvaled by the following commit:

Reloading module with ip_pkt_list_tot=60 should fix it.

[NETFILTER]: ipt_recent: sanity check hit count

If a rule using ipt_recent is created with a hit count greater than
ip_pkt_list_tot, the rule will never match as it cannot keep track
of enough timestamps. This patch makes ipt_recent refuse to create such
rules.

With ip_pkt_list_tot's default value of 20, the following can be used
to reproduce the problem.

nc -u -l 0.0.0.0 1234 &
for i in `seq 1 100`; do echo $i | nc -w 1 -u 127.0.0.1 1234; done

This limits it to 20 packets:
iptables -A OUTPUT -p udp --dport 1234 -m recent --set --name test \
--rsource
iptables -A OUTPUT -p udp --dport 1234 -m recent --update --seconds \
60 --hitcount 20 --name test --rsource -j DROP

While this is unlimited:
iptables -A OUTPUT -p udp --dport 1234 -m recent --set --name test \
--rsource
iptables -A OUTPUT -p udp --dport 1234 -m recent --update --seconds \
60 --hitcount 21 --name test --rsource -j DROP

With the patch the second rule-set will throw an EINVAL.
