in thread Net::LDAP q

So what happens under Net::LDAP. Was "1000" was actually being treated as less than "500"?

Update:: Did some testing and answered my own question. I populated a few uid fields in some sample data, then ran a few ranging queries using Net::LDAP. Seems that (under open LDAP at least), not only can you get different result via ldapsearch and Net::LDAP, but the LDAP server just silently ignores the query. No errors or other status information.
