Max number of columns in a datagrid?

Never thought about this. But I made a DG, and put this into a button:
on mouseup
   repeat 300
        put random(9999) & tab after temp
   end repeat
   set the dgText of grp 1  to temp
end mouseup

No problem. With a horizontal scrollbar, I can zoom to each side of the DG.

But If I try to change the count to more than 300, the DG loses its hScroll,
and it seems that many separate numbers appear overlapped in column 1.
Further, a lot of time is spent while the DG is digesting this new property

Trevor is the one to address this, assuming anything I just did makes sense.
