I have done a vacuum and a vacuum analyze.
I can try again for kicks, but it is not in production so no new records are
added and vacuum analyze is ran after any mods to the indexes.

I am still pursuing Dell on why the monster box is so much slower then the
desktop as well.

The "?column10?" is because EXPLAIN isn't excessively bright about
reporting references to outputs of lower plan nodes.  (Gotta fix that
sometime.)  The real point here is that the planner thought that a scan
plus sort would be faster than scanning an index that exactly matched
the sort order the Merge Join needed ... and it was wrong :-(

So this is just the usual sort of question of "are your stats up to
date, maybe you need to increase stats targets, or else play with
random_page_cost, etc" ...
