With a count different from zero, the hook is called after every
"instructions" here means opcode instructions of the virtual machine.
So, with values "l" and 50000, the hook is called for every line and for
every 50000 instructions executed. Each line in your loop has less than a
dozen instructions, so the line calls completely dominates the counting.
