I did not say it does not work. All I meant by "does not play nice" is a
reference to the Troll's own doc regarding QFile::open ( int m, int f ):
"The QFile that is opened using this function, is automatically set to be in
raw mode; this means that the file input/output functions are slow. If you
run into performance issues, you should try to use one of the other open
The job cannot close a QFile opened this way either. However, with the
adjustments I am making as result of Waldo's reminder about moving the resend
stuff down to the io-slaves, this issue does not matter.
