That's a known issue in the svn library: you can verify it by watching
the memory use of the process: it will climb up until there's no more
memory available.

But it seems you don't understand what locks are used for: they're not
to lock whole directories but only those files you're actually working
on. And I seriously doubt that you're working on 2200 files at once - if
you really do, create a branch instead.

Also, locking so many files will put a lot of stress on the server too,
not just the client.
