Try both of these things
* REINDEX on the index being used in the query, then re-EXPLAIN
* enable_hashjoin = off, then re-EXPLAIN

You should first attempt to get the same plan, then confirm it really is
faster before we worry why the optimizer hadn't picked that plan.

We already know that MySQL favors nested loop joins, so turning up a
plan that on this occasion is actually better that way is in no way
representative of general performance. Does MySQL support hash joins?
