ebay removed a lot of functionality in the past when it comes to "crawl ebay data", without mentioning this in any docu. so my suggestion is: this is not a bug, it´s wanted, to prevent anybody to get all items of a specific seller. ebay focus lays on "search for a product" not "searching for all items of seller XY" because no end user will search like that and from ebays point of view this is "bad bad bad" ;-))) maybe the browse API is something for you, but it only returns 10k items.
