Thanks for the answer.
I have double checked that all the foreign key that are referencing "id" on
scenario are indexed.
I have even vacuum analyze scenario table and all the tables that referenced
this table.
Something that is interesting is that: it only happens for a certain values.

ie. delete from scenario where id='1023' is very fast, but delete from
scenario where id='1099' is running forever.

Any ideas?
