I think that you need to setup the AllowOverride Option for the 
"hotquery" directory.

# This controls which options the .htaccess files in directories can
# override. Can also be "All", or any combination of "Options", "FileInfo",
# "AuthConfig", and "Limit"
AllowOverride All

That way, the "hotquery/export" directory will use the .htaccess 
configuration located in "hotquery", rather than just looking into 

Hope this helps,
