Not happening on my iPad running iOS 7.0.4.
OP, on which operating system and hardware are you experiencing this problem? If the EA developers visit this forum, having the OS and hardware info could help them track down the issue.
You should also post your issue in the Bugs sub if you haven't already done so.
Edit to add I have about 4,900 items in my SF and I'm running on a 4th Gen iPad.
There are a couple of threads for this in the bugs section. I have the problem with my main town but not my feeder town. If you wait long enough it does continue, but it takes a while.
