Really!? So much for that theory.
Is work_mem set similarly on both installations?
The only other thing I can think is that you've exposed some unfortunate
corner case in the hash join logic. Would you be willing to send me
(off-list) the lists of user_ids being joined? That would be the
clan_members.user_id column and the user_id column from the join of
parties and clan_participants.
