The "unused item pointers" number seems a bit high, but otherwise that
looks pretty reasonable.

Is it possible that the particular row you were updating has been
updated quite a lot of times since the last vacuum?  Or even quite
a few times within a single transaction?  The only thing I can think
of that would explain such a slow fetch is if the code has to reject
a bunch of recently-dead versions of the row.
