But you did not select *all* files which were shown and preselected in
the commit dialog, did you?

It does. Just write every file you want to commit to a file first,
then commit using the -F switch. Because that's what TSVN must do if
you deselect one or more files from being committed. If you however
commit everything, then TSVN just commits the parent folder
recursively (what you usually do with the CL client).

Again, it all depends on how you commit. Just commit everything, and
you'll be fine. If you don't commit everything, TSVN must commit each
file individually, putting stress both on TSVN itself and of course
the server - that's why the server takes 10 minutes to execute the
post-commit script (passing 5000+ paths to that script takes some
time). And the last line in the commit dialog is shown *after* the
post-commit script has executed.
