what are you rendering them with OGL? MR? If MR, turn on the MR diagnostics in the "render manager" that might help you find out whats going on.

You should probably ask on the arnold mailing list, sure people there will have had experience with that.

I doubt very much it is the number of particles as we have rendered a bunch of particles and lots of strands with Arnold. More likely to be something else such as you are setting particle size to zero or something like that.
