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?

    Is this possible with small cap stocks?

    Is it possible to momentum trade small cap stocks? I heard that it’s possible to momentum trade ANY type of stock, but I want to start trading small caps (I know the risks involved, I already trade futures and currencies) and would like to know if it’s possible to momentum trade small caps. Thanks for any help.
