"Maximum Number of Records shown" is ignored when a column filter is applied in the history tab. Once a filter is applied, GoldMine stops using the setting "Maximum Number of Records shown" thus it can display all records returned by the filter.
As this can cause major performance issues for contact records with large amounts of history items.
1. Users should release the filter by pressing the bottom X every time they leave the tab or GoldMine
2. Users could go to a contact record with a small number of historical records when closing GoldMine (might be inconvenient)
3. Or use GM.INI override that forces the filter to not be available when the user switches back to the History tab
