Log length limit on Windows? Problem with using notepad as log editor?

I was just committing some changes and got an error with a not too
helpful message. I'm wondering if it is related to the message log
length.. since that is the only thing I was doing differently this time
around.

C:\>set EDITOR=notepad

C:\Workspace\>svn ci

[notepad opens with a list of changed files]
[I add 8 full lines of log info to the top of the file, save, exit
notepad]

svn: commit failed (details follow):

C:\Workspace\>

As you can see there were no "details" following :)

This was the first time I tried to use an editor for the log message,
previously I simply typed it out on the command line.
I made sure my workspace was up to date with 'svn up' and tried the
same thing.. got the same useless error message.

So I did:

C:\Workspace\>svn ci -m "[paste each line of my log here.. all as one
command line]"

But Windows barfed because the command line got too long and so it
entered the truncated command. The commit happened with a truncated
log message. But it committed fine!

Any ideas what it could be?

I'm running svn 1.1.0 (r11180) and using svnserve on Win XP SP2.

Thanks,

Scott
