I installed the latest version 5.4.1 and it does look a little faster but
still not fast enough for my volume test. I watched postgres and noticed
that the bottleneck is the function bucardo.bucardo_delta_check(text,
text). I changed it a little to check if the latest record in delta table
exists in the track table which is very fast and now the performance looks
a lot better.:

CREATE OR REPLACE FUNCTION bucardo.bucardo_delta_check(text, text)
    myst TEXT;
    myrec RECORD;
    mycount INT;
    FOR myrec IN SELECT * FROM bucardo.bucardo_delta_names WHERE sync = $1
ORDER BY tablename
        RAISE DEBUG 'GOT % and %', myrec.deltaname, myrec.tablename;

        myst = $$WITH d AS (SELECT d.txntime FROM bucardo.$$ ||
myrec.deltaname || $$ d ORDER BY d.txntime DESC LIMIT 1)
        SELECT 1
        FROM d
        WHERE NOT EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM bucardo.$$ || myrec.trackname || $$
t WHERE t.txntime = d.txntime AND (t.target = '$$ || $2 || $$'::text OR
t.target ~ '^T:'))$$;

        EXECUTE myst;
        GET DIAGNOSTICS mycount = ROW_COUNT;

        IF mycount>=1 THEN
            RETURN NEXT '1,' || myrec.tablename;
            RETURN NEXT '0,' || myrec.tablename;
        END IF;
ALTER FUNCTION bucardo.bucardo_delta_check(text, text) OWNER TO bucardo;

I will have to run more tests to see how it performs in time and I will let
you know.
