it handles hundres of tables just fine.

the problem is like it says: Too many unprocessed floats, meaning that the 
number of floats that are currently in memory and not yet placed are too 

Try inserting \clearpage some places, it dumps all unprocessed floats, and 
after the last one it starts a new page.

specifying something to the optional argument to \begin{table} might also 
be usefull.
