Sorry, you need to put this in the soruces.xml for the source:

<!-- on a findPage() this is the most results returned -->

Then you will see what I am seeing :)

I think you've already changed the code to deal with too many results - I
can provoke:
Error: Too many results, please narrow your search

It doesn't show any results - goes back to search screen - but I think that
is appropriate. Message might indicate the limit - but that appears to be
per source - SearchPageResult doesn't go to that level of detail - not that
you get on given the exception that is thrown.
