Try it with the clause the other way round:
... where ( forme && '((20000,20000),(30000,25000))' )
Var on the left is the required normal form for indexscan restriction
clauses. Postgres should be able to figure out that it can flip your
clause as given into that form ... but for some reason, && is not marked
as commutative in the 7.0 system catalogs, so it won't do it for you.
I have fixed that for 7.1. If you really want to write the var on the
right side right now, you could patch your system catalogs for yourself:
UPDATE pg_operator SET oprcom = oid WHERE oprname = '&&'
