Sorry, I believe I got it wrong and hash-table hits don't count for NPS, so that
"more transpositions" effect can't be read from the nps numbers and also the
part of my post about Crafty's EGTBs doesn't make much sense then.
Transpositions wouldn't show up in NPS. But if Leonid was more looking at
differences in solution times with few or many pieces on the board and if he
doesn't have transposition/hash tables implemented yet in his program, the
higher number of transpositions because of the few pieces on the board would be
a likely explanation for commercial programs being faster there.  In solution
times at least, that is.
