  • On Python 3, pyinotify takes unicode paths, not bytes. Annoyingly, it skips over non-unicode paths without throwing a clear error, so it took a bit of digging to find the problem.
  • The _is_pyinotify_08x() method is really interested in 0.8 or above, but was testing just for 0.8.x. We're on 0.9.x now, so I updated it to treat that like 0.8. It looks like pyinotify 0.8 was released more than 5 years ago, so maybe we should just remove this check altogether and assume we have a new enough version.
