inotify issues - File deletion, file creation #240
Testing v1.9.4 here in Debian Testing - I noticed a while back that change detection was flakey on the SpaceFM repo as I worked on it (thinking about moving from git commandline to git-cola), so I have done a little testing in a fresh test repo:
Created directory test, inside there I touch'd test , 'git init', 'git add .', 'git commit -am 'Initial commit'', then opened it up in git-cola.
touch lol: Worked, untracked 'lol' listed.
I pushed the test repo to GitHub (after registering the remote etc separately with git), asked for password, succeeded. I then repeated the touching and removing test - now git-cola isn't even picking up on 'lol' appearing without a manual refresh.
Reopened git-cola, detection of file creation works again.
In all cases, 'inotify enabled.' was displayed in the console.
If you can't recreate this I'll see if I can fight it here (although I may need to take it on as a programming project, meaning it would join a queue...).
