With that analysis, I'd be betting against it being a client problem.
(If you wanted, you might confirm that by pointing an old client at
the new server.)

I'd look into how the data was loaded into the new server and how
the database is configured: number of buffers, indexes, and whether
analyze has been run or not.

It would be strange indeed (possible, but very strange) to find
such a slowdown between 7.x and 8.x when the team is preparing
to push 9.0 out the door.  Surely it would have been known before;
therefore it's a practical certatinty that there is something
different about the configuration of your two servers.
