It probably isn't hung, but it's going to go through
every row of the table to make sure the constraint holds
successfully which is going to result in 380,000
queries again t_release_component. I haven't had time
recently to do any of the fk stuff I've been meaning to
do, but this is optimizable for most cases, but it hasn't
been done.
