I got a little distracted by the bizarre actual-time values shown for
some of the query steps:

The hash-join total time is obviously wrong seeing that the total
runtime is only about 100000 msec, and the negative values for the other
two are even more obviously wrong.

I recall that we saw similar symptoms once before, and I thought we'd
fixed it, but I didn't find any relevant mentions in the CVS logs.

What version are you running, exactly?  Could you repeat the EXPLAIN
with client_min_messages set to 'debug2', and see if you see any
messages about InstrStartTimer or InstrStopNode?

                        regards, tom lane
