Hi Adam,

slapo-pcahce is acting in the correct fashion.  It would appear that your 
remote system is Active Directory, which in typical Microsoft fashion, 
deliberately mis-implements paged results so that it incorrectly ignores 
the maxsize setting when paged results are in use (contrary to 
specifications).  I would generally suggest talking to the AD administrator 
so that the bind identity of the pcache database is not subject to the 
maxsize limitation.

This ITS will be closed.
