That message comes from the server regarding the repository, not from
the client regarding the working copy. Of course if you are using
file:// protocol then the client and server are the same program, but
the operations are still separate. It is not clear from your
description whether the commit succeeded i.e. the global revision
number has incremented and the commit details show up in the log.

The "S:\..." at the beginning is ringing alarm bells with me because
it looks like a network share letter rather than a local drive letter.
Please tell me the repository is not located on a network share...
