Given that the estimated costs are close to the same, this is probably
just the result of small differences in the ANALYZE statistics leading
to small differences in cost estimates and thus choice of different
plans.  I'll bet if you re-ANALYZE a few times on the source database
you'll see it flipping between plan choices too.  This is normal because
ANALYZE takes a random sample of rows rather than being exhaustive.

So the interesting question is not "why are the plan choices different"
it is "how do I get the cost estimates closer to reality".  That's the
only way in the long run to ensure the planner makes the right choice.
Increasing the statistics targets or fooling with planner cost
parameters are the basic tools you have available here.
