Are you using some kind of script on the server?  They often have limits 
and will error out if you hit them, especially on old servers and 
cvshome servers, which attempt to send every filename on the command line.

Do it from the command line.. it's hard to diagnose what a frontend is

If you're sending 'tag -c' that means every file must be checked first 
before tagging, which will be much slower than simply tagging the file.
