Your earlier reports mentioned unpartitioned case taking 300 seconds,
partitioned case without partition-wise join taking 600 seconds and
with partition-wise join it taking 3200 seconds. My experiements
showed that those have changed to 70s, 160s and 160s resp. This is
with Thomas's patch. Can you please confirm?

As explained earlier, this is because the tables are not partitioned
similarly. Please try with lineitem and orders partitioned similarly
i.e. same number of partitions and exactly same ranges.

Earlier it was using partition-wise join between lineitems (l1, l2,
l3) since it's the same table. Now for some reason the planner doesn't
find joining them to each other a better strategy, instead they are
joined indirectly so we don't see partition-wise join being picked. We
should experiment with orders and lineitems being partitioned
similarly. Can you please provide that result?

Thanks for confirming it.
