Here is your problem:
->  Seq Scan on fn06t t1  (cost=0.00..25808.30 rows=15 width=95)
               Filter: ((fn06emp07 = 1::smallint) AND (fn06tiptit =
'R'::bpchar) AND (fn06titban = '002021001525               

Problably system has to read from disk whole table fn06t each time, beacuse it
doesn't use index scan.

Do you have any indexes on table fn06t? How selective are conditions above
How big is this table? Can you use indexes on multiple fields on this table 
- it should help, because conditions above return only 15 rows?
