Try finding the __LoadBridges() function in the VenueClient.py file  
(in Linux systems, that will be /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/ 
AccessGrid3/AccessGrid/VenueClient.py). In that function is a line  
	bridgeList = self.registryClient.LookupBridge(10)

Change the number 10 (the maximum number of bridges to list) to  
anything else you like - I just tried it with 20 and it gave me a  
list of 16 bridges.
