You're wrong about that, because we have not done anything to change IN
planning in 8.1.x. You might need to re-ANALYZE or something; it sounds
to me more like the planner has changed strategies in the wrong direction.
FWIW, 8.2 should be vastly more efficient than 8.1 for this sort of
query --- any chance of an upgrade?
