Was this true even for cases where the batch size was
smaller than 100? For example, if a search returns over 100
results but the batch size is only 20 (so that only 20
results at a time are displayed), do you still get the
performance hit?

So you're saying that you are doing all searching using SQL
statements, and not just object retreival and storage,
correct? How are you handling full text searches?
