When file_entity_admin_files() builds the form to display on /admin/content/file page, it seems to build a pager; however, the pager and results limitation does not work because the extend() calls against the db_select() $query object are not returned correctly (per http://drupal.org/node/508796).

The following change fixes it for me (using 7.x-1.x-dev from 9/29):

     'operations' => array('data' => t('Operations')),
   );
-  $query = db_select('file_managed', 'f');
+  $query = db_select('file_managed', 'f')->extend('PagerDefault')->extend('TableSort');
   $query->join('users', 'u', 'f.uid = u.uid');
-  $query->extend('PagerDefault')
-    ->extend('TableSort')
-    ->fields('f', array('fid'))
+  $query->fields('f', array('fid'))
     ->fields('u', array('uid'))
     ->condition('f.status', FILE_STATUS_PERMANENT)
     ->limit($limit)

I've come across this too because we have so many files that page runs out of memory due to this bug.

This needs fixing asap. Patch attached (so I can stick it in my make file).
