Well, you're kind of right.  I removed the limit, and now _both_
versions of the query perform a sequence scan!

Oh, I forgot to include in my original post: this is PostgreSQL 7.3.4
(on x86 Linux and sparc Solaris 6)

The limit is tricking you.
I guess a sequential scan is cheaper than an index scan with the limit
26 found there.

I am wrong?
