[Samba] samba 3.2.6 - Does locking.tdb has a maximum size?

I've noticed that locking.tdb file grows over time. This happened while running the following test:
- delete locking.tdb and restart samba
- connect a linux client using cifs mount
-run the following script on the client:
for i in `seq 1 130000`;do
KB_rand=$(((RANDOM % 300 + 1)*(1000))
dd if=/dev/urandom of=/mnt/cifs/files/smallfile$i bs=$KB_rand count=1
So there's only one client writing many files.
The locking.tdb file grew to 2 megs, at which point space was exhausted (I put the temp files in tmpfs, perhaps a mistake :)).
Is this to be expected? what causes this increase? does it saturate at some point? is it possible to configure it?
