Fix problem where `wait` returns too soon

`wait` doesn't seem to wait until all child processes have finished.
It may just be returning after all the `swipl` processes are done,
but there are visibly still Markdown, `sed`, and `smartypants` processes
still running. I've implemented a hack that just checks for any
`sed` and `smartypants` processes after wait returns. This works
more effectively and ensures the Markdown/HTML processing is done
before moving on to the next steps (e.g. generating the RSS feed).

This was the real cause of the bug a couple of commits back where
unsqueeze.sh would produce empty HTML files --- it was a race condition.
