Try running an 'svn status -v' instead of just 'svn status'.

I can not reproduce this here. The commit dialog comes up pretty fast
even for a very big working copy with 287 added files.

If 'svn status -v' is equally fast for you but the commit dialog isn't,
create the registry key HKCU\Software\TortoiseSVN\DebugOutputString
(DWORD) and set it to 1.
Then get the debug viewer from here:
start it and open the commit dialog. You should see debug messages from
TortoiseProc with timing info. Maybe there's something in there we can
use to find out what's the problem here.
