for the record I'm seeing similiar dramatic slowdowns(ie takes a few
additional hours) during restoration of a 120GB database here - with the
default autovacuum settings the restore is taking ages to go through the
ALTER TABLE foo ADD PRIMARY KEY bar steps because autovacuum is
analyzing those tables at a very slow rate (ie the box is more or less
idle and the ALTER TABLE is waiting for the lock).

I have not yet experimented with different autovacuum_vacuum_cost_delay
settings but this seems like a step backwards :-(
