Just re-read your post and realized you were probably saying that you 
get (effectively) the same EXPLAIN ANALYZE results from both, ie this 
isn't your problem.

So PQexec works fine for you on both 7.4 and 8.3, producing a quick 
result no matter which server you run it against?

You mean that this is where you have your problem, and it's fine on both 
versions when you use plain PQexec?

Consider using wireshark to examine the network traffic, and see if 
there's much activity during your long and slow PQconsumeInput / 
PQisBusy loop. The throughput analysis tool is handy for this.
