From experience when I see a question like this I don't even want to participate because the answer isn't what the questioner wants to hear but hey...what can I say.

There is a maximum size to the ACL you can't exceed it.

Three words: Active Directory Group
But of course you are a not in the market for that answer and you've already created smaller groups and added them to the portal so until your willing to succumb to M$'s Active Directory I'm not sure there is a solution. :-(  Sorry I don't know Bill well enough to get him to change this. :-)
