With a slight correction (you had m & mx so I changed them to be all mx, I
hope this is what you intended) this query works.  It's exactly the same
speed, but it doesn't give me the warnings I was getting:

NOTICE:  Adding missing FROM-clause entry for table "monitorx"
NOTICE:  Adding missing FROM-clause entry for table
"monitorstatus_statusitemsx"
NOTICE:  Adding missing FROM-clause entry for table
"monitorstatusitemlistd8ea58a5x"

I never knew what those were from, I even searched Google trying to find out
and I couldn't understand it so I gave up.  Thanks for pointing this out for
me, and thanks for fixing my query.
