This error message is thrown by libsvn_ra_svn. It happens when the
server throws an error in the middle of a commit.

That makes the situation clearer. But as a matter of usability, given that
this message is likely to be seen by people who know little about
libsvn_ra_svn, "Successful edit status returned too soon" is a bit
deceptive, since (1) it has nothing to do with the edit that the user has
just done and/or is expecting to do shortly, and (2) the operation in
question was *un*successful. Perhaps some thought could be put into a
better wording?
