did you run VACCUM ANALYZE before? you should do it after pg_restore your db 
to a new filesystem

in which order did you ran the queries. If you start your server and run two 
equal queries, the second one will be much faster because of some or even all 
data needed to answer the query is still in the shared buffers.
