Indeed Extbase has trouble coping with large amount of records. Going 
for straight INSERTs is better. Also if you often have such imports to 
do, you may want to take a look at extension external_import, which is 
designed especially for such a task, mapping imported fields to existing 
database tables, providing a Scheduler task for regular imports, etc.
