This was planned and implemented in 3.1.4, and is not a bug. This has been
discussed several times already on the list and the bug database. It's been
proposed to add a max_page_buttons attribute to limit the page buttons to
something smaller than maximum_pages, when you increase the latter to allow
a very large number of possible result pages with a limited set of buttons,
but for now the only option is to increase maximum_pages and have lots of
page buttons when there are lots of results.
