I'll bet upgrading to 7.4.2 clears up your problems.  I'm not sure if
it was in 7.3 or 7.4 where the index bloat problem was solved.  Try to
see if just reindexing will help your performance.  Also, run a plain
vacuum at least nightly so that your table size stays reasonable.  It
won't take much time on a table with only 50k rows in it.
