well, I ran your test on my box and here are the results:
pre hot:
run 1: 3617.641 ms
run 2: 5195.215 ms
run 3: 6760.449 ms
after vacuum:
run 1: 4171.362 ms
run 2: 5513.317 ms
run 3: 6884.125 ms
post hot:
run 1: Time: 7286.292 ms
run 2: Time: 7477.089 ms
run 3: Time: 7701.229 ms

those results aren't exactly terrible, and this case is highly artificial.
