[Bioperl-l] Bio::Tools::Run::RemoteBlast hits limit

I noticed that there is a limit (100) of hits retireved using the module.
I need to retrieve more hits than this. I have tried a couple of ways:

$Bio::Tools::Run::RemoteBlast::RETRIEVALHEADER{'DESCRIPTIONS'} = 500;]
$factory->retrieve_parameter('DESCRIPTIONS' => 500);

In both cases, I 
print "LIMIT: ", $factory->retrieve_parameter('DESCRIPTIONS'), "\n";

gives LIMIT: 500

But the module actually retrieved 100 hits. Modifying the code to 500 gave
me 500 hits.

My question is: what is the correct way to modify this default number?
