I don't know the limits, but I think this would be stretching Samba's
capabilities.  I would be very, very interested in understanding what
you learn from your experiments.  

It may well be that we need to do more work on our ldb layer to scale
effectively to that size, particularly in dbcheck. 

Please keep us informed how you go!
