Found this mail, it seems that the DC removal is still on implementing?  If so, the tune request can not solve the DC problem at all? 
Sorry for these questions, as I am really confused by the code and the observed phenomenon.

There is a DC removal in the USRP, but it needs some time to integrate.
Perhaps in the gnuradio case, you are looking at an FFT that has had
some time to integrate at the new frequency. But in your finite
acquisition case, there is no time.
