A Windows CE target device may stop responding (hang) when the device uses Remote API (RAPI) calls from the personal computer to search a database.

This problem has been observed in databases that contain approximately 16,000 or more entries, and when a database with approximately 32,000 entries is populating.

This problem is also documented in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
289501 Searching a CEDB Database with More Than 16,000 Text Records May Hang Target Device


This behavior occurs because of a known problem in the Windows CE 3.0 database API, which affects functions that perform lookups or reordering.
