IIUC Torgeir was referring to the getTotalSize() method which is
designed to return the total number of results that would have been
returned if the query had no limit on it. See JCR-1073/JCR-3474.

Nice! :-)

This was a bit of a borderline case (see comments in JCR-3402), and it
is indeed debatable whether it was a right call to include the change
in a patch release. The fact that the change plugged a potential
security issue weighed in my decision to include it.

If the change is causing trouble, let's file a followup issue and see
what should be done to make the behavior more backwards-compatible
without compromising security.
