I am really not sure about this case, may be CPU allocation in virtual
machine had problem.. but can't say anything

Yes, i agree with this point, cost model can always be improved. And anyway
in most of the queries even in TPC-H benchmark we have seen big improvement
with parallel join.

I have done further testing for observing the plan time, using TPC-H
queries and some other many table join queries(7-8 tables)..

I did not find any visible regression in planning time...

*There are many combinations of queries i have tested, and because of big
size of query and result did not attached in the mail... let me know if
anybody want to know the details of queries...
