Seems to be the problem. There are a few things that seem odd, the
first is that it estimates it will return 1M ros, but returns only 31.
The other is that sorting 31 rows is taking 5410606 milliseconds.
My first guess would be to crank up the statistics on a1.subj to a few
hundred (going up to a thousand if necessary) re-analyzing and seeing
if the query plan changes.
I'm not expert enough on explain analyze to offer any more.
