Eek. Casting both to varchar makes it super quick so I'll fix up the tables.
Added to the list of things to check for next time...
On a side note - I tried it with 7.4.1 on another box and it handled it ok.
Thanks again :)

Subject: Re: [PERFORM] simple query join

Looks to me like it's because your assetid is varchar in one table and an integer in the other table.  AFAIK, PG is unable to use an index join when the join types are different.  The query plan shows it is doing full table scans of both tables.
Change both to varchar or both to integer and see what happens.
Also make sure to vacuum analyze the tables regularly to keep the query planner statistics up-to-date.
