Well, if you're trying to identify the speed of the join itself and not
how long it takes to provide the input for it, that seems like a
sensible calculation to make.

Yeah, that seems to work out to about 25us per row instead of 3us, which
is a lot slower. Maybe the hash got split up into multiple batches ...
what have you got work_mem set to? Try turning on log_temp_files and
see if it records any temp files as getting created.
