That is right, and exactly how the scaling factor / base value are
supposed to work, so this should be fine.

No a scaling factor of 0 shouldn't stop the table from being analyzed.
Unless it's just a bug, my only guess is that autovacuum may be getting
busy at times (vacuuming large tables for example) and hasn't had a
chance to even look at that table for a while, and by the time it gets
to it, there have been tens of thousands of inserts. Does that sounds
Also, are other auto-vacuums and auto-analyzes showing up in the
pg_stats table? Maybe it's a stats system issue.
