Dynamics CRM 2011 Online workflow infinite loop problem

We currently have a Dynamics CRM 2011 Online workflow which fires upon creation of a record within a Custom entity. The workflow processes data then creates a new record within the Custom entity table, which in turn fires the same workflow.

The reason we are processing the data in steps, is that there is a 2 minute process limit within the Dynamics CRM 2011 online platform. We have found that if we create more than 6 records within the workflow the process fires an infinite loop exception and the process stops.

Does anyone know how we can get around this problem or give us any insights?
