It looks like your view is using a left join to look for rows in one
table without matching rows in the other, i.e. a SQL construct similar
in form to the query below:

SELECT ...
FROM A LEFT JOIN B ON (...)
WHERE B.primary_key IS NULL

Unfortunately there has been a planner regression in 8.2 in some cases
with these forms of queries.  This was discussed a few weeks (months?)
ago on this forum.  I haven't looked closely enough to confirm that this
is the problem in your case, but it seems likely.  Is it possible to
refactor the query to avoid using this construct to see if that helps?

We've been holding back from upgrading to 8.2 because this one is a
show-stopper for us.
