The difference disappears with --jit off.

In rdict.py, ll_dict_lookup() is unrolled only when jit.isconstant(key).
I haven't looked at the traces, but it's possible that in this case, the operation is a direct 
access to a known index...

This is not done when the key is in a variable, because of course it may change in the timeit 

Maybe the jit could learn about fastlocals that are unlikely to change, because there is no 
assignment in the loop?
