Stu Coates (stu(at)stucoates(dot)com) reports a bug with a severity of 2
The lower the number the more severe it is.

Short Description
Not performing index scan for 64bit primary

Long Description
When performing a query against a table that has a 64bit (int8) primary key a sequential scan always takes place.  Changing the key to a 32bit (int4) one will result in the _pkey index being used (after a vacuum -analyze is ran). This results in a huge performance hit when using 64bit foreign keys and referential integrity checks when the data volumes are large (>1M rows).

PostgreSQL version: 7.0.2 on powerpc-unknown-linux-gnu, compiled by gcc 2.95.2
