No, I think it is the popen() (or rather, Qt reading from the pipe).
1) If I butcher DataDirectProcessor::DDPost() to:
return popen("cat /dev/null", "r")
it will do busy-wait reading for the second or third days' grab
(but, interestingly, not fail on the first).
2) If, instead, it does:
return fopen("/dev/null", "r");
it will happily grab each day's empty data, and finish.
I suspect a QProcess() would work always correctly with wget,
but that doesn't really fit around the file caching that we
do with the DD (SD?) data.
