The planner is guessing that scanning in rec_id order will produce a
matching row fairly quickly (sooner than selecting all the matching rows
and sorting them would do).  It's wrong in this case, but I'm not sure
it could do better without very detailed cross-column statistics.  Am I
right to guess that the rows that match the WHERE clause are not evenly
distributed in the rec_id order, but rather there are no such rows till
you get well up in the ordering?
