Bulk adding to collections is broken

I'm trying to add a little over 3500 books to a collection in one fell swoop with the Power Edit feature, but the process never finishes. I waited quite a while -- over an hour -- and there's no movement at all. Some of my books were added correctly, but not all of them. Is there a limit to how many items you can edit via a single request? Either way, if the process stops, there should be some sort of alert -- the site shouldn't just hang with the progress bar incomplete until the end of time.

And is there any other way to add a large amount of books to a collection in one fell swoop? I'd rather not manually click through 36 pages...

Unless you're moving private books around, can you tell me which set of books you're moving, and to which Collection? I can try this on my end to see what I can see.
