sort_mem is in kbs. So you are setting it roughyl 4MB. Given that you don't
seem to have any shortage of RAM, how about 32/64/128MB RAM till things work
Of course, setting it so in postgresql.conf would be a bad idea. Just set for
the session that makes this query and reset it back.
Keep us posted on updates..
