Yeah, the culprit appears to be vacuum analyze (vacuum alone doesn't do it).

The problem is that I fixed the original database by dropping and
recreating the tables populating them with backed up data.  And, now it
won't recreate (the values in pg_stats for them is lost).


I will keep trying to recreate it for you.
