Probably not; with the loose index scan, you'd see something like "Using index group-by" in the Extra column, if I remember correctly...

More likely, it might be a difference in the data setsbeing operated on. Are both schema identical? Are the data sets identical? Also, could you post the SHOW CREATE TABLE and EXPLAIN output for each? Thanks!
