I'm wondering if the distribution of your few columns across the actual 
rfiles has an impact. I believe it could be that, even without column 
families, a subset of the rfiles could be precluded from even being 
opened (because we know your given column family doesn't exist in the file).

So, the one column family happens to be only in some files, where the 
other column family happens to be included in all the files (or at least 
some larger ones). Thus, in one case, Accumulo is just reading much less 

You could try to use `accumulo rfile-info` on some of the RFiles in your 
table, looking for the column families in question.
