Do other tables have foreign key references to the table you're
deleting from?  If so, are there indexes on the foreign key columns?

Do you have triggers or rules on the table?

Have you queried pg_locks during the long-lasting deletes to see
if the deleting transaction is waiting for a lock on something?

How many records did you delete in this case?  If there are foreign
key references, how many records were in the referencing tables?
How repeatable is the disparity in delete time?  A single test case
might have been done under different conditions, so it might not
mean much.  No offense intended, but "I remember" doesn't carry as
much weight as a documented example.
