It determines the plan based on available statistics, which in this
case seem to indicate rather different data.  Do the two databases
have identical data?  Have they both been recently analyzed?  What
is the default_statistics_target on each?  Do any columns in these
tables have overrides?

Hello Kevin,

both databases have identical / same data and hardware. On postgresql 8.3.8 default statistics target is 10 and at postgresql 8.4.1 it is 100. But i have been experimenting in both directions with postgres 8.4.1 10, 100, 1000 or 10000 does not matter perfomance remains bad. Analyze has been run recently on both databases (even an explicit analayze before query makes no difference). Autovaccuum and analyze are set quite aggressive at 0.01 (v) and 0.02 (a) and postgres 8.3.8 still outperforms 8.4.1.
