This sounds familiar.

Any "pqact" process *must* be started as a result of an EXEC
entry in the LDM configuration-file (etc/ldmd.conf); otherwise,
the process won't receive the CONT signals that are sent to
every process in the LDM process-group to indicate that a
data-product has been added to the product-queue.  See
for more information.

Dave, you can contact us directly by sending email to
