Is there a limit to the number of metadata elements that can be extracted into a project

Is there a limit to the number of items that can be pulled into a project?  I was trying to extract all of the reports in my environment, so I can look at some specific items, and when I do the metadata update, I get all of the report folders, but most of them are empty.

The Metadata API limits a retrieve/deploy request to 1500 metadata files.

 

We also are investigating an issue in the Force.com IDE v15.0.1 in which some metadata types are missing from the Choose Metadata Components dialog.  Editing package.xml by hand to make sure the components you want are in your project will produce the correct behavior.  This issue does not appear to be present in 15.0.0.
