May be you can find the limitation by gradually increasing the size of 
the test data.

Just a blind guess, but I think it has something to do with IE's 
rendering engine.
I experienced a similar situation: I was filling a definition list with 
<dt> <dd> pairs dynamically., where the CPU was going %100 for about 10 
or so seconds in IE.
In my test case, there were no observeble CPU utilization problems in 
Firefox or Opera. The only problematic browser was IE (v6 I guess).
And the only solution I came up with was splitting and paginating the data.

Have you tested it with IE8 beta?
Do you observe anything peculiar with the system (in terms of memory and 
CPU utilization?

Hope that helps,
