The following query has never finished.  I have let it run for over 24 
hours.  This is a one time update that is part of a conversion script 
from MSSQL data.  All of the tables are freshly built and inserted 
into.  I have not run explain analyze because it does not return in a 
reasonable time.  Explain output is posted below.  Any suggestions on 
syntax changes or anything else to improve this would be appreciated.

Dual PIII 1Ghz
4 spindle IDE RAID 0 on LSI controller.
Postgres 7.4.5
Linux version 2.6.3-7mdk-p3-smp-64GB

postgresql.cong snip:

tcpip_socket = true
max_connections = 40
shared_buffers = 1000
sort_mem = 65536

source_song_title +-10,500,000 rows
source_song +-9,500,000 rows
source_system 10 rows

Code run right before this query:
create index ssa_source_song_id on source_song_artist (source_song_id);
analyze source_song_artist;
create index sa_artist_id on source_artist (artist_id);
analyze source_artist;
create index ss_source_song_id on source_song (source_song_id);
analyze source_song;
create index st_title_id on source_title (title_id);
analyze source_title;

source_song.source_song_id = int4
source_song_title.source_song_id = int4
source_title.title_id = int4
source_song_title.title_id = int4

update source_song_title set
source_song_title_id = nextval('source_song_title_seq')
,licensing_match_order = (select licensing_match_order from 
source_system where source_system_id = ss.source_system_id)
,affiliation_match_order = (select affiliation_match_order from 
source_system where source_system_id = ss.source_system_id)
,title = st.title
from source_song_title sst
join source_song ss on ss.source_song_id = sst.source_song_id
join source_title st on st.title_id = sst.title_id
where source_song_title.source_song_id = sst.source_song_id;
