Remember that the CVT does not quite work like a traditional transmission in that the engine RPM and wheel speed are not tied to each other. If the engine is not hitting the power target for a given accelleration request the CVT will bump up the engine RPM to try and get the accelleration you are looking for.

I had a similar problem when my engine started to die (DONT GET SCARED!). There was a certain large hill that I drove up each day on my commute and it got to the point that the engine would shoot up to 5K RPM and just sit there trying to give me enough to power to make it up the hill. This was just trying to maintain speed, not accellerate.
