Interestingly enough, I imported about 6000 messages using "arch" on 
Mailman v2.010 just  a few months ago.  All in one shot.  It took about 10+ 
minutes but it worked beautifully

The limitation you are suffering my be due to your machine/memory/available 
disk space/etc... It could even be your version of Python.
