Hi,

I've got many queries running much slower on 8.1 beta2 than on 8.0.1
Here is a simplified one that takes 484 ms on 8.1 and 32 ms on 8.0.1.

select
   0
from
   Content C

   left outer join Supplier S
   on  C.SupplierId = S.SupplierId

   left outer join Price P
   on C.PriceId = P.PriceId;

Any ideas why it's slower?

Thanks

   PriceId               INTEGER      NOT NULL DEFAULT NEXTVAL('PriceId'),

-- I've only put one row in table Content because it was sufficient to
produce
-- the slowdown

create table content (contentid integer not null, supplierid integer,
priceid integer);
insert into content VALUES (148325, 12699, 388026);
