If the "pqinsert" process is being run outside the LDM system
(i.e., it isn't being run due to an EXEC entry in the LDM
configuration-file, etc/ldmd.conf) then the upstream LDM process
on the upstream host will not receive any CONT signals from the
"pqinsert" process and, consequently, will have to rely on its
failsafe behavior of waking-up every 30 seconds to check for
new data-products in the product-queue.

The solution is to run the "pqinsert" process (indeed, all
LDM ingester processes) out of the LDM configuration-file.
