Not creating timestamps for new files #174

When Guard is running with watch_all_modifications, timestamps aren't being created for new files.

I believe Guard::Listener#file_modified? needs to be updated to resolve this. However, I don't understand the if statements in this method well enough to provide a fix.

Sorry for the lame response time - all core members seems to be very, very busy with other stuff. That particular area of Guard is not easy to understand and must be handled carefully, so there is no quick fix in sight. But many thanks for reporting, we'll take care of it when we have the time and muse for get into it.

Hi @sutherland not sure why timestamps aren't created for new files, can you try to submit a failing spec so we can try to fix it? There's a lot of example of that kind of specs in

Hi @sutherland,

I've pushed a fix for this yesterday, can you give it a try by using Guard from git: gem 'guard', :git => 'git://' and let us know if the issue is solved?

Thanks in advance!

@sutherland please can you tell us if the fix in Guard master works for you?

Looks good. Works for me.
