Well, those statistics are almost completely different, and what the
slow one says is that parentid = 300 accounts for 97% of the table.
So that's why you get different plans.  If that is not reflective of
reality, then you have not ANALYZEd the table lately.

Maybe it's a pilot-error problem, like not doing the ANALYZE as a user
with sufficient privileges?  IIRC you have to be table owner, database
owner, or superuser to ANALYZE.
