This is Your problem. The system`s estimate for the number of distinct
annotation_ids in t2 is wildly off.
The disk activity is almost certainly swapping (You can check it
iostat on the linux machine).
Can You try "analyze t2" just before the delete quety? maybe try
raising statistics target for the annotation_id column.
If all else fails, You may try "set enable_hashagg to false" just
before the query.
