Thanks for the reply.

Your explanation is based on a single directory only - which is at least
in my case a pretty uncommon use case (Java development). Right now, my
java root directory (selected for the commit call) contains ~1200
directories (.svn and its many sub folders already excluded), which
could make a difference if TSVN would scans some of them instead of all.
The scan for each commit takes at least ~30s currently.

Anyway, if it is too much work and if this is not often requested its
fine not to implement the improved status fetching, but would it be
feasible to at least reopen the commit dialog automatically again
(optional of course)?
