The probability of a huge stack of events during the default 7 days
range is certainly minimized compared to the 45 days range.
The problem is that this pager issue was not anticipated before your
patch, mainly because I don't have access to a personal account on LCL.
Therefore, you, or someone having access to a LCL personal account will have
to contribute futher in order to solve this issue

Then, as explained above, in order to code something useful, I would need:
- the maximum number of transactions before the pager activation
- an anonymized example of all the pages composing a fully paged result
