It would be interesting to know the result of EXPLAIN ANALYZE for the
query, both when it performs well and when it doesn't.

One thing I see right away when I look at your postgresql.conf is that
you have set shared_buffers to an awfully small value of 2000, when you have
enough memory on the machine (vmstat reports 2GB free memory, right?).

Does the situation improve if you set it to a higher value?
