I was just bugging Marc for some useful data, so I'll ask you too:
could you provide a trace of the pg_restore execution?  log_statement
plus log_duration output would do it.  I am curious to understand
exactly which steps in the restore are significant time sinks.

Hm, better make sure the log includes some indication of when
checkpoints happen.
