Ya. Its possibly because of a lower inotify max_watches limit. It used to 
print too many warning messages in the past, even without --debug (besides 
causing other problems).
BTW, this problem was fixed in the next bugfix release, 0.2.18. And you should 
up the max_watches limit; the value in /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches 
should be significantly larger that the number of directories in your home 
directory. (OpenSUSE 10.3 possibly does that ... not sure).
