Streams can be used for kernels too, not only for operations with
memory. But I agree, from your explanations it seems that streams are
not the issue here.

This sounds interesting, could you possibly quote this section here?
Or, even better, construct two simple programs, in Python and in C,
which reproduce this effect?
