Admin actions are only performed on items that have been selected in the change list. Users can only perform actions on items that actually appear on the page - items that do not appear in the list because of pagination can't be selected for actions. The Admin does a useful sanity check, and does not put a "Show all" link on the change list when the number of items is above a sane threshold (defined by MAX_SHOW_ALL_ALLOWED, which defaults to 200).
Filters help, and it's possible to raise the MAX_SHOW_ALL_ALLOWED value, but it's still a common - and valid - case that the user may want to perform an action on a set of items larger than a practical MAX_SHOW_ALL_ALLOWED value. And it's tedious to go through multiple pages of items performing actions on each page.
I propose adding something like what happens in GMail. When you've selected all the items on a page, a new link appears that says, "All 50 items on this page are selected. <link>Select all</link> 439 items in Whatever".
