I've got a test case which shows something related and weird, though not
the exact case.
The queries shown here have significantly different costs, depending
upon whether we use tables a or b in the query. Since a and b are
equivalent this result isn't expected at all.
I suspect the plan variation in the original post is somehow cost
related and we are unlikely to discover the exact plan.
