usrmgr retrieves only 511 users

I am running samba version 3.0.20rcl-SVN-build-8475 on SLES9.  I have an
NT4 domain with 5000+ users whose data has been vampired to a samba ldap
backend on the SLES9 machine.

With the NT4 domain active and the samba domain inactive, joining the
domain on Windows2003 using "usrmgr.exe->User->Select Domain" shows all
5000+ users; however, with the samba domain active and the NT4 domain
inactive, the same command shows only 511 users.  When I debug the samba
code, it appears that there are insufficient calls (4) to
pdb_search_entries to retrieve all the users.  Can anyone comment?
