Inotify ABI Breakage.

This is hopefully the last.

Latest inotify breaks ABI and API.

Beagle as of Mon May  9 17:53:35 EDT 2005 supports the new inotify and
is, thus, incompatible.

You want patch version 0.23-6 or later:

SUSE 9.3 users can grab a kernel package, version 737.inotify.0 or

The main change to the API is a new "IN_ISDIR" bit set on all events
that pertain to a directory.  This allows user-space handy access to the
information and allows us to remove the events that had a file/directory
delineation, such as IN_CREATE_FILE.
