Can the 3000 series scopes download all 4000 data points?

The 3000 series programmer's manual states that the ":WAVE:DATA?"
command is identical to the ":WAVE:SCREENDATA?" command. This
implies that the full depth of 4000 samples cannot be downloaded
(assuming all 4000 points are not visible on screen).

After using the ":WAVE:DATA?" command, I get only 1198 samples instead
of the full memory depth of 4000 samples. The downloaded data indeed
appears to match what is visible on-screen.

Can anyone confirm this so I can stop wasting time on this scope?
