I have no idea *why* but here (Linux, x86), using ocamlc and ocamlopt
3.06, I get exactly the same timings (i.e. 0.44s for bytecode and 21.91s
for native code). No special options (like -p or -g) were used for

Does the bytecode and nativecode use *exectly* the same C engine (i.e.
maybe one is compiled with different options (like -fpic -O2 or
someting) ?)
