It sounds like some query got planned a different way that happened to be
really suboptimal -- I've seen really bad queries be quick on earlier
versions "by accident" and then not have the same luck on later versions.

Could you find out what queries are taking so long (use
log_min_duration_statement), and post table definitions and EXPLAIN ANALYZE
output here?
