For what it’s worth I could never pull a load hard enough to annoy the standard rectifier and mosfet/heat sink setup with EOB or ERR. YMMV though.
According to Jon Z. it's not that you truly overload it, but just get it hot enough to increase the leakage current, that's what does the FET's in. You're not actually overloading the FET's max current.
