Your runtimes seem to be increasing as you repeat the test. Did you
remove the "DROP TABLE" from the beginning? On my laptop, post hot takes
~2x as long as pre hot, even when repeated, which matches the results of
your first runs.

I'm going through a bunch of CPU test cases a colleague of mine wrote.
Some of the test cases shows much worse performance with HOT.
Unfortunately they're quite complex and overlapping, so instead of
posting them as is, I'm going through the ones that HOT performs badly
at, and try to reduce them to simpler test cases like the above.
