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 
functions. "

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.
