If I had to guess, I would say that GHC transformed your original function (which took a reference to an ST hashtable) into a faster worker function that passed the hashtable's constituent data around unboxed, among other things. But I don't think GHC will perform similar optimizations now that the hashtable is passed around via ReaderT.
