7.4 doesn't have any statistics on expression indexes. 8.0 will do what
you want though. (I just fixed an oversight that prevented it from

I believe that the estimate of number of groups will be exactly the same
as the estimate of the number of values of tid --- there's no knowledge
that date_trunc() might reduce the number of distinct values.

In 7.4, the only way I can see to force this to use a hash aggregate is
to temporarily set enable_sort false or raise sort_mem.
