[PostgreSQL 8.1.0 on i686-pc-linux-gnu, compiled by GCC gcc (GCC) 4.0.1]
I have a simple join on two tables that takes way too long.  Can you help
me understand what's wrong?  There are indexes defined on the relevant columns.
I just did a fresh vacuum --full --analyze on the two tables.
Is there something I'm not seeing?
