In MM2.1, if a particular qrunner (remember, we now have several
separate queues) finds no files to process, it goes to sleep for a
while (time.sleep()) then checks again when it wakes up.

I misspoke earlier, the default sleep interval is 1 second, not 1
minute (this is configurable in mm_cfg.py).

It has to do this, or it'll busy loop.  I don't know of a good,
portable way to wait on new files showing up in a directory.
