-The included page_hit_counter.php script gets called for both, so that's
not the bottleneck.

1) That isn't the way to decide, try commenting it out and see if there is
actually any difference or not, I call it process of elimination.
2) What reason do you have for using flush/ob_flush?
3) Shouldn't make a difference but you can do the same logic without extra
variables like $qs.

I am also wondering how you execute PHP code (counter script) with the
.htaccess redirect?
