jQuery slideUp jumps lines when setInterval timer hits

The web page this problem is on is an unattended display board with no user or mouse interaction. I have a timed event repeating on a page.  The event calls database results to be scrolled up the page.  The first time around, everything scrolls just fine.  When the setInterval timer for the scrolling event hits, the scrolling starts jumping two lines at a time.  The next reload of the timed event, it is now scrolling three lines at a time.  I cannot figure out how to make the repeating scrolling event not speed up.  The page it resides in is reloaded every minute so the process starts over again when the main page reloads.

Without being able to see the code in action it is going to be difficult to diagnose this one.
