It probably isn't the networkstatus fetch that did it. It's much more
likely that something else on your system sent the HUP signal -- I would
guess it's something that is part of your Tor package.

For example, if your Tor package enables logrotation, it probably hups
Tor after that so Tor will close the old log file and reopen a new one.

So, it depends which Tor package you have. Take a look at what cron jobs
it added and what they do.
