In MM 2.1.x, this is controlled by the per-list attribute 
admin_member_chunksize which is set the default value of 
DEFAULT_ADMIN_MEMBER_CHUNKSIZE when the list is created. As installed 
this has the value of 30.

If the number of members exceeds admin_member_chunksize then the 
membership is paginated alphabetically otherwise it is displayed on a 
single page.

If you set DEFAULT_ADMIN_MEMBER_CHUNKSIZE to a different value this 
will only affect new lists.

To change things for an existing list you can use the 
$prefix/bin/withlist script from the command line. For instance, see 
the following terminal transcript:

mailman at mailman:/mailman/run> bin/withlist -i -l rbtest
Loading list rbtest (locked)
The variable `m' is the rbtest MailList instance
 >>> m.admin_member_chunksize = 60
 >>> m.Save()
Unlocking (but not saving) list: rbtest
mailman at mailman:/mailman/run>

But, I would be careful about making the new value too large.
