My guess would be you are doing things differently in the ODB and
Qt versions of your application. Specifically, things like creating
a connection or starting a transaction all have costs. So make sure
that you don't do any of these unnecessarily. Specifically, I would
suggest that:

1. You create a single instance of odb::database for the lifetime
   of your application.

2. Batch as many database operations into a single transaction as
   reasonable since every transaction begin/commit is a network
