Limit on number of feature classes in mxd when caching?

Hi all,

I am trying to generate a cached map service for a .mxd containing 150 feature classes.

ArcGIS Server creates the service, but then fails to generate the map cache. (The log files tell me that the Caching GeoProcessing Service has crashed and the anlayze map tool shows nothing prohibitive in the mxd prior to publishing.)

I have tested creating caches for map services with fewer feature classes, say <20 and it works fine.

I am wondering, is there a limit on the number of feature classes that can be in an .mxd when you are attempting to create a cache?

I have been unable to locate any ESRI documentation on the matter.
