[LON-CAPA-users] file size limit - anonymous tests

Not sure if this is a "users" or 'admin' question:

I'm trying to print 300 anonymous, CODEd tests for a class, but when  
it comes out there's only 107 versions and that's the end of the  
document.  I was just looking in the /home/httpd/prtspool and saw   
that the size of the file from a previous attempt is that magical  
2147483647 byte size.  Is this an unavoidable limitation of printing  
that many tests?  Is there a workaround?

I notice I can request 300 codes and then only print a certain number  
of them.  Is there anyway to produce 300 test codes, then print them  
100 at a time without duplicating codes.

I'm guessing that the easiest workaround would be using just 20  
individual codes and then distributing that to the 300 students.
