The bulk of the time is evidently going into this step. You didn't say
how big cdm_ddw_tran_item is, but unless it's in the billion-row range,
an indexscan isn't going to help for pulling out 10 million rows.
This may be about the best you can do :-(
If it *is* in the billion-row range, PG 8.1's bitmap indexscan facility
would probably help.
