Why is it bad for a mutual fund to have too many assets?

I keep reading on morningstar and other finance sites about how "such and such a mutual fund is getting too bloated with assets," and that this is especially a problem for funds that focus on small-cap stocks. And I see that Vanguard and many other companies have closed funds to new investors–even Vanguard’s Windsor II, which focuses on huge corporations, has restricted new investors. Let’s say a mutual fund purchases more that 50% of a company, why is that bad? Isn’t that what Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway does?

    How to find small cap stocks in specific sectors?

    What resources/methods do you use to find small cap stocks in specialized areas (i.e. energy). Im already invested in major corporations and wanted to venture to a more growth orientated field, but I really do not know how to locate small stocks other than googling or random searches. Ideally I would like to have a list in which I can sort through a wide variety of stocks for research purposes.

    FYI: Im from Canada therefore I trade on the TSX.
