How about the complete test case? There's something awfully odd going
on there, and I'd like to find out what.

Hard to say. I was about to ask if you'd experimented with altering
configuration parameters such as shared_buffers or checkpoint_segments
to see if you can move the point of onset of slowdown. I'm thinking
the behavioral change might be associated with running out of free
buffers or some such. (Are you running these tests under a freshly-
started postmaster, or one that's been busy for awhile?)
