Hot-reload does not re-compile Automation Tests
I have also tested this in 4.9.
You can try this with any sort of change if for some reason console outputs aren't hot-reloaded by default. The results are the same.
This is a huge problem for the speed and practicality of conducting regular unit tests. At the moment, I have to reboot the editor every single time I change a test. It takes too long to be practical or useful.
After further editing the code you provided I was able to get the project to compile and had the same outcome when running the automation test. I have entered a report (UE-25350) for further investigation.

I found a workaround that allows you to enable hot reloading per test at least. The nature of the bug and the workaround are described in my blog post about it: https://vhiterabbit.com/2018/03/02/ue4-code-fixing-test-hot-reload/
