Ok so basically do not pre-populate the number of pages.
I guess applications that do this are backed by an RDBMS not an LDAP? Or
they're just being really expensive?

Ok, what is the proper technique then?
always pull at least one element than the number you can store in one
page : that will tell you if you will have a next page or not.
This save CPU on the server, a lot of CPU. Actually, getting the number
of results beforhand results in doing the request twice, more or less
(for servers that handle such things).
