IDE/Standalone Performance Issues - A Light At The End of the Tunnel!

I think I have found the cause of the performance problems I have
been experiencing. I had been referring to objects by their long name
in various places in the offending code. I started changing the code
to refer to the same objects by their short ID and each line of code I
changed resulted in quicker performance. I haven't been able to
change all the code yet but the evidence is that the performance
issues will go away when I start using the object IDs everywhere.
Finding the problem is good of course but does anyone know why there
are no performance issues referring to an object by it's long name in
the IDE but it causes such a performance hit in a standalone? Maybe
I'm misunderstanding the process of building a standalone but I would
have thought a standalone would function more efficiently than the
same code executed in the IDE not less, kinda like in the old days of
interpretive vs compiled BASIC?
