But the previous version didn't fetch anything on QGIS startup... 

I have a serious trouble with QThread - it's running only when PyQGIS is in 
use. It means: I create and call QThread object, it runs while another 
(non-threading) initial functions of my plugin are executed, then stops and 
waits until any other python plugin is in use. Then it depends on the used 
plugin: if I open any modal window, my thread runs continuously while it's 
open. If I open non modal one, my thread can do only one step during opening 
this window, and second step during closing it.

Maybe it's because this thread doesn't own any visible widget. Maybe I should 
first create a notify widget, put in on the status bar and then call QThread 
from that? I'll try to do it today.

Let me know before you do, today I'm implementing some bugfixes and 
decorations without uploading to the repository one by one.
