Dramatic performance drop when table > 100MB

Please help an ex-Microsoft person stay with MySQL :-) - see below

"Simple" table:
time | datetime
n1 | smallint(5) unsigned
n2 | smallint(5) unsigned
n3 | smallint(5) unsigned
msgid | int(10) unsigned
msgtext | blob
url | varchar(255)

(tables seem to all be of Innodb type)

No problem at all - as long as the table size stays below 100MB. As soon as the size reaches that threshold, performance slows to less than 1/10th of normal! At that speed, it is just not feasible.

I doubt that the 100MB number is a coincidence.

This is with MySQL 4.1 on XP. Anybody has a clue what's going on?
