[Support #HQC-205846]: ldm bug?

> I seem to have found an LDM bug, or a least a performance problem.  I am

The above shows the initial selection-criteria.  Note that the start-time is 
12:52:23.800 on 2006-02-28
and that the message was printed at 07:52:25 on the same day.  The initial 
start-time SHOULD be one hour
before the current time rather than about seven hours later.  Is something 
unusual going on with your clock
or with the logging timestamp?  Alternatively, are you using a negative 
time-offset ("-o" option) or
maximum-latency ("-m" option) when the LDM is started?

> Feb 28 07:53:56 freshair2 cirp[6329] INFO: No matching data-product in 
> product-queue

The downstream LDM process then tried to find the most-recent product in the 
product-queue that
matched the selection criteria.  It found nothing; consequently, the initial 
start-time remained unmodified.

If the selection-criteria start-time is in the future, then no matching product 
will be found in the product-
queue and the downstream LDM will, consequently, search the entire queue.  I 
think this is a problem with
how the start-time was set rather than with the LDM per se (unless the LDM is 
setting the start-time 

I'll see if I can modify the code so that if it's impossible to find a matching 
product, then the search will
terminate immediately.
