You want _at least_ the latest 7.4 version -- ideally, the latest 8.2

Have you re-ANALYZEd after the data load?

Anyhow, the issue with the planner not knowing how to estimate expressions
like "now() - interval '5 minutes'" correctly is a known 7.4 issue, and it's
fixed in later versions. It might have worked more or less by accident
earlier, although it seems odd that it wouldn't even have considered the
index scan...
