[RC5] Win32 GUI build 388 - puzzling speed change

I have been running build 388 of the Win 32 GUI client since yesterday.

I have just been looking at the log and see that the typical key rate is
between 372000 keys/sec and 376000 keys/sec, and has been with the
machine idle and left running overnight.

I noted today that there was one 3*2^28 block processed. This one went
by at 411000 keys/sec.

Why the difference? I checked the reported times and number of keys, and
checked that the client is displaying the rate correctly in each case.
So why do 3*2^28 blocks seem to go 10% faster?
