Is this actually true in the case of HOT + long running transactions ? I
was supposing HOT has the same problems in the presence of long running
transactions...

It does, HOT won't help you here. A long-running transaction is just as much of a problem with HOT as without. Besides, I don't recall that you're doing updates in the first place.
