Having had to do some similarly-sized bulk data loads (in my case,
MSSqlServer at $JOB) couple other ideas occur to me:

1) I believe MySQL has a side-loading function (I'd have to go
digging for it; a quick google suggests a "LOAD DATA INFILE"
statement[1]) that allows you to load data from an external file such
as an XML or CSV file

2) Load into a temp table in testable batches, then do some sort of
batch insert into your main table.  Again, a quick google suggest the
"INSERT ... SELECT" syntax[2]
