Beagle, a desktop search infrastructure. Check out

Some other little projects. If anyone else is using it, please let us

The main problem is that dnotify sucks so bad now that no one uses it.
So we don't have any existing applications to convert, besides FAM, and
we did that (via Gamin).

I've been meaning to write some sample GNOME code to show how easy it is
to use Inotify, even directly. I'll get on that.

It might of been caused by a bug in Gamin, so it took some while to
expose. It should only happen when the user asks to remove a watch on a
wd that does not exist (I just forgot to check that error case in a bug
fix I added).

Keep pounding. It ought to be fixed, but please let me know if not!
