It can't happen. Well, you can't get "some of the files" into the
repository without all of them being committed. You can get "all of
the files" into the repository but not have your working copy be
updated to reflect that fact. The commit is atomic, but the updating
of the working copy afterwards is not.

I suspect you're missinterpreting the error message, or your
description of the problem is a bit off.

Unfortunately, without a reproduction recipie, or at the very least
the actual error message you're seeing, it's hard to tell for sure one
way or the other.
