Hi Lucia,

Yes, there will be a limit on the amount of metadata the GLI can handle.
To be honest, we've never really tested exploding large databases.

How big (in MB) is the database that doesn't work correctly? If it's
small enough to e-mail, could you please e-mail it to me personally and
I'll try it here. A limit of 4000 records sounds a bit low, and I want
to check it isn't a bug that is causing the problem.
