I'm getting inclined towards handling this case like a regular search,
only replacing LDAP_SUCCESS with LDAP_SIZELIMIT_EXCEEDED.  In fact, it
would be more appropriate to make this request not cacheable, because
there's no guarantee the server would return the same entries for
repeated searches, but for caching purposes this shouldn't really matter.
