You have to be more specific here. What kernel are you using?  If you
are using a RHEL5 or SLES10 based there is a race-condition where the
/sys/block devices are created without all the data entries populated
and multipathd can't get all the data from them.

And by
"not displaying all the paths", you mean that it did not have all of the
4 paths per LUN?? Or that you did not have 1000 multipath device maps?

Do they show when you do "multipathd -k 'show paths'" as orphans?

Or do they show up if you run 'multipath' by itself?
