setting geqo_threshold=3.
Now my Monthly report takes about 3 sec.
(Users are running that sequence of select queries (I call it invocation of
the final view ;-) quite often  for any given period of time --
 usually from one week to half a year (rarely) so it is essential part of my

Maybe my exp. will encourage somebody to play with scary genetic stuff. ;-)
