I have to split up this thread to respond to it, since you covered a
couple points.  Comments below.

The two parameters you felt were missing are, in fact, only ever used
by the SearchHandler.  Therefore, in the split of core configuration
to LdapConfiguration I moved them to LdapConfiguration.  These
parameters are in the new config doco at:

I apologize if you think this change wasn't warranted but it does
reflect how the server is designed.  The fact that there is no unit
test is bad but there wasn't one before this move.  I think these
parameters belong on LdapConfiguration and that your change should be
reverted.  The parameters you added back to StartupConfiguration only
satisfy your attempt to configure server.xml and they are unused
during runtime.

I know you are busy and that this change came at a bad time, but in
Eclipse a quick "right-click | References | Workspace" will show that
the LdapConfiguration#getMaxSizeLimit and
LdapConfiguration#getMaxTimeLimit are being used by the SearchHandler.
