Dear PostgreSQL gurus,

I really not intend to start a flame war here but i am genuinely
seeking help to retain PostgreSQL as my database for my RT
system.

Few months back i had posted regarding lowering of column names in SQL
being passed to RDBMS by DBIx::SearchBuilder , looks like it was controlled
by a parameter "CASESENSITIVE" changing it to 1 from 0 did help for postgresql
to MySQL it probably does not matter.


But This time its a different situation
The query in Postgresql is taking  6 times more than MySQL

The Query being given gets generated by DBIx::SearchBuilder.
Although i am not sure but i feel modules like DBIx::SearchBuilder which are
supposed to provide RDBMS independent abstraction  are unfortunately
getting test only with MySQL or Oracle otherwise such huge difference in timing
were not possible.
