Well, yes, of course :-) I meant whether there's anything you
can do about those slowdowns.

Those operations are too fast for timeit. The overhead associated
with looping is much larger than the time it takes to run the
operation itself. That's why in pybench I put the operations into
blocks of repeated statements. The interpreter then doesn't spend
time on branching when going from one statement execution to the
next (inside those blocks) and you get closer to the real runtime
of the operation you're trying to measure.
