Ellipse - polyline to polygon

I have created a model which includes the following:

Database table (input) --> Table to Ellipse (tool) --> Ellipse polylines (output)

As I need polygons, I used ET GeoWizards' Polylines to Polygons tool for this purpose. It worked fine with my smaller dataset of about 9 records, but crashes with my larger dataset of several thousand.

Is there another workaround? You would think ArcGIS 10 would have something as simple as convert polylines to polygons and such, but have not found a suitable tool yet. (Note: buffer not suitable in this case as this is an ellipse not a circle)
