If you found yourself with a spare moment, could you run these again
with the number of open/close cycles set high (say, 100) and the
number of rewrites set to 0 and also to 1? Most of the time spent is
actually spent overwriting the files so by reducing or eliminating
that aspect it might be easier to get a handle on the actual
performance difference.
