the result file compression amount can vary quite a bit. I've not done any testing, nor seen any done, to see how well the "sparse" compression technique compresses files of the same model with differing mesh sizes. So I have nothing to go on but a hunch that the smaller models file compressed more. Try turning off the file compression and solving each again. What happens?
p.s. which version are you using?
