I ran into a similar problem.  Except I had mine set to the default 300 in
config.c and was only getting a max of 6 players on start up.  I tracked
the area of code where it sets the max_players for the game to comm.c.  
Take a look at the get_avail_descs function in comm.c.  Depending on what 
your compiler supports it will do several different things to determine 
the actually maximum players allowed.

I ended up commenting out a lot of this code (I'll probably regret it), 
and just setting max_descs = MAX_PLAYERS.

That part of the code is where I would look first.
