Unfortunately I have the requirement to be able to ether print to 
paper or to PDF and if I split into smaller batches, I'll end up with 
a separate PDF file for each batch.  Also, it only prints the cards 
it's got.

Do you know if this is already a bugzilla report (crashing when 
printing large number of pages) or should I file it?
