I suspect you are correct about vastly different performance characteristics between InnoDB and MyISAM...

Not "trashes"--  thrashes (churns) the DB. I'd see the delete process locking things for several minutes (presumably doing a table scan). The insert processing would wait. As soon as a batch of 500 were done, it would start over. The current/new accounting data could never get caught up because the delete processing would keep it locked out.

Thanks for the info. What we were seeing makes much more sense now.
