What are the values in rub_parent ... is their many disparity in the values ?
May be you have most of the value set to 8 ... and may be the optimizer think 
a seq scan is better than the use of an index ...

Could you do a simple :
SELECT rub_parent, count(rub_id)
   FROM rubrique 
 GROUP BY rub_parent;

Just to see the disparity of the values ...
