[squeak-dev] debugging PipeableOSProcess

I am having a very strange problem using PipeableOSProcess.
I created a method similar to below. It worked fine. Still does.
| c d p |
c := 'wget http://www.url.com/dir1'.
d := '/home/jimmie/VL/dl/'.
p := PipeableOSProcess command: c environment: nil workingDir: d
input: nil output: nil error: nil errorPipelineStream: nil.
I attempted to use the same method to download repositories for other
directories on the same website. The only change was from dir1 to dir2.
Running the command in a shell with dir2 works just fine. Copying the
command from Squeak and pasting in the shell, works fine.
But when I run the method in a workspace. Squeak just sits and waits on
wget which at some point just stops. It doesn't exit or finish.
Sometimes if I kill the wget process, Squeak will resume working.
Is there a way to debug such a bizarre situation. With the Squeak UI
locked up until the method exits, I am at a loss on anything I can do.
Any help greatly appreciated.
And thanks for PipeableOSProcess. Its been interesting doing this in
Squeak as opposed to Python.
