A production system has had a query recently degrade in performance.  
What once took < 1s now takes over 1s.  I have tracked down the 
problem to a working example.

Compare  http://rafb.net/paste/results/itZIx891.html
with   http://rafb.net/paste/results/fbUTNF95.html

The first shows the query as is, without much change (actually, this 
query is nested within a larger query, but it demonstrates the 
problem).  The query time is about 1 second.

In the second URL, a "SET ENABLE_SEQSCAN TO OFF;" is done, and the 
time drops to 151ms, which is acceptable.

What I don't understand is why the ports table is scanned in the 
first place.  Clues please?
