I think the reason for the performance difference is that 7.3 treats
JOIN syntax as forcing a particular join order, while 7.4 doesn't.

Just out of curiosity , how does 7.4 determine the optimal Join Order?
is it GEQO in case of 7.4 although i did not enable it explicitly?
Thanks for the reply , I sent the EXPLAINs also just now.

What i really want is to help improving the Pg specific Component
for DBIx::SearchBuilder. The module is being widely used in
the  mod_perl world and has impact on the performance perception
of PostgreSQL.
