I think it's fair to say there shouldn't be such a low numerical figure
limit on the number of files that can be committed in one action. There
may be a physical limit imposed by:-
your local resources,
the Subversion server
or the network connection.
There have been discussions on the svn developer's list about a
particular Lunix distro which imposed a 1024 open file limit under a
particular circumstance so maybe you need to ask on the Subversion users
list if others have experienced your problem.

However my thoughts are that you may either have not waited long enough
for the network to transfer the diff data or the network dropped the
connection before the operation was completed. When you re-connected had
the commit succeeded?
