I have serious performance problems with the following type of queries:
/explain analyse SELECT '12.11.2007 18:04:00 UTC' AS zeit,
                       'M' AS datatyp,
                       p.zs_nr AS zs_de,
                       de_mw_abh_j_lkw(mw_abh) AS j_lkw,
                       de_mw_abh_v_pkw(mw_abh) AS v_pkw,
                       de_mw_abh_v_lkw(mw_abh) AS v_lkw,
                   de_mw_abh_p_bel(mw_abh) AS p_bel
                   FROM  messpunkt p, messungen_v_dat_2007_11_12 m, de_mw w
                       WHERE  m.ganglinientyp = 'M'   
               AND 381 = m.minute_tag
                       AND (, p.mw_nr) = (m.messpunkt,;

Explain analze returns

time=0.503..320.872 rows=2189 loops=1)

         Index Cond: (p.mw_nr =
 Total runtime: 329.134 ms
(9 rows)

Doesnt looks too bad to me, but i'm not that deep into sql query 
optimization. However, these type of query is used in a function to 
access a normalized, partitioned database, so better performance in this 
queries would speed up the whole database system big times.
Any suggestions here would be great. I allready tested some things, 
using inner join, rearranging the order of the tables, but but only 
minor changes in the runtime, the version above seemed to get us the 
best performance.
