You have to remember that Photoshop Elements is still a 32-bit application and has a limit to the amount of system memory it can access. While the Elements Organizer doesn't have any programmed limits to the number of images it can handle, there are still practical limits to the number of images you can put in the Organizer and you computer still able to handle the Organizer.

I'd suggest breaking up your catalog into multiple catalogs, around 10k images each.
