No, I tried Linux only.

I think you can reproduce it. First I created a database full of many
BLOBs on Postres 8.4.5. Then I created a dump:
pg_dump -F c test > test.backup8
It took about 15 minutes. Then I tried to restore it on Postgres 8.
pg_restore -v -d test2 -j 2 test.backup8
It restored in 18 minutes. Then I restored it to Postgres 9.0.1, it took
20 minutes. Then I created a dump there:
/usr/pgsql-9.0/bin/pg_dump -F c test > test.backup9
It took 25 minutes. Finally I tried to restore it and got what I've
/usr/pgsql-9.0/bin/pg_restore -v -d test2 -j 2 test.backup9
However if I remove the option '-j', the database restores in 45 minutes.
