I'm using cursors to walk a table with close to a million rows at times.

I am just wrapping the action in a transaction and then declaring the
cursor within the transaction and then walking the table with a
find_by_sql with an SQL fetch command.

It works well.

Any reason you aren't doing it this way?  Could just call it with a block...
