Because, depth becomes more important than rules. This has nothing to
do with Rybka or Fritz per se. But this is true when comparing engines
where one is largely chess knowledge based, and the other is largely
number of nodes based. (Rules are better than being blind. Knowing the
truth by seeing it, is better than just having a rule.)
At different times lengths you will get different results.
Rybka should regain strength at longer times when Rybka gets better
depth. Interestingly enough, this is probably why Rybka does so much
better on multi-cpu machines. It is easier for Rybka to get to the next
ply compared to other machines. Which gives it a much better overall
