Are you using the default UNICODE encoding for your databases??
This could potentially translate into a performance hit  (considerable?
Maybe, depending on what your applications do)

A related question:  why not update to the latest, 8.2.x ??

Hmmm, I don't think the settings should be the same --- search the
archives for discussions on performance tuning and an informal
documentation of the postgresql.conf file.

Am I understanding correctly that you did this??  Just to double check,
yes, it is *very* important that you analyze the database *after loading 

You could probably check the postgres log file to see if there are any
obvious red flags in there.
