dag flashes again when building in ignored subdirectory #620
Hmm are you running on Windows or Linux? The filesystem monitoring implementation is unique to each one. I don't observe this behavior on Linux so I'm going to assume that this problem only exists in the Windows filesystem notifier. Please let me know if this is not the case.
I did manage to get a slightly newer Windows environment setup so I'll try to take a look next week (unless someone beats me to it). If this fix is nice and simple then I'd like to include it as the last topic that gets merged in before the upcoming v2.9 release.

@sthalik -I just did some basic testing of this and am not able to reproduce it on Windows. I tried both git-cola and git-dag against a git checkout of git-cola itself. Touching a file tracked by git (e.g. a .py file) caused a refresh, but touching an ignored file (e.g. a .pyc file) did not. Creating a file an an ignored directory (e.g. in test/tmp) also did not cause a refresh.
I'm happy to look into this some more, but I'll need more information on how to reproduce what you are seeing.
@sthalik sorry for the delay in getting back with you. At this point, I might have to create a branch with some extra instrumentation for you to run to help determine what is going on. If that is acceptable, can you tell me what version of git-cola you normally run (e.g. git master, v2.11, etc.) and I'll create a new branch based on that.
