I've got them. Here there are two gprof profiles:

http://lnfm1.sai.msu.ru/~math/public_misc/idxscan.gprof
http://lnfm1.sai.msu.ru/~math/public_misc/bitmap.gprof (now as links, because the previous letter with those files as
attachements haven't passed on -hackers (due to size, I think)) 
 


bitmap.gprof is  the profiling of the:

test=# explain analyze select * from q3c,q3c as q3cs where 
(q3c.ipix>=q3cs.ipix-3 AND q3c.ipix<=q3cs.ipix+3) OR 
(q3c.ipix>=q3cs.ipix-1000 AND q3c.ipix<=q3cs.ipix-993);

And idxscan.gprof is the profiling of the:

test=# EXPLAIN ANALYZE SELECT * FROM q3c,q3c as q3cs WHERE 
(q3c.ipix>=q3cs.ipix-1000 AND q3c.ipix<=q3cs.ipix-993);                                                           QUERY
