~/.local/share/tracker/tracker-miner-fs.log contains over 60,000 errors similar to
14 Jun 2010, 09:30:24: Tracker-Warning **: Could not add monitor for path:'/home/mjg59/Source/iphonelinux-kernel/drivers/scsi/qla2xxx'
Tracker is configured to ignore ~/Source.
Upstream developers need both ~/.config/tracker/tracker-miner-fs.cfg and
~/.config/user-dirs.dirs files in order to know what's wrong. Full logs are
also appreciated, since they often contain much more info than what a single
line can provide.
The errors go away if I increase the number of possible inotify watches, so I think it's simply that I have too many directories.
Upstream say the bug has been fixed in the development tree. Not sure if it will back-ported to tracker-0.8.x series.
