I'm using watch via the forever script, and that was detecting all files in my working copy as changed (even though none were -

I tracked it down to watch seemingly incorrectly matching dates. Even though the dates are the same the == comparison fails. I don't know what the cause of this is, I suppose it's false because they're not the same date object, I can reproduce it with this script...

var x = new Date();
var y = new Date();

if ( x == y ) { 
    console.log( 'Equality matched!' );

if ( x.getTime() == y.getTime() ) { 
    console.log( 'getTime() matched!' );

Only the second will match, haven't tried this on any other system (i'm on osx with node 0.4.11).

@mikeal Can you take a look at this when you're back from Portugal?

It is blocking a new feature we implemented in forever:
