The following 19-fold overestimate is influencing the rest of the
plan:

  ->  Seq Scan on l_pvcp  (cost=0.00..2.17 rows=19 width=4) (actual time=0.066..0.081 rows=1 loops=1)
        Filter: (value ~~* '%pi%'::text)

Have you tried increasing the statistics target on l_pvcp.value?
I ran your queries against canned data in 8.2.3 and better statistics
resulted in more accurate row count estimates for this and other
parts of the plan.  I don't recall if estimates for non-leading-character
matches in earlier versions can benefit from better statistics.
