Re: Fam working a little to well?

I think that maybe the problem is that nautilus updates on every
change to a file instead of just updating when a new file is created.

I don't know about everyone else but for me monitoring means telling
me when a file is renamed, removed or created. But i couldn't care
less when it's properties change.

As for thumbnailing, it would be ideal to have the thumbnail generated
when the file is finished downloading. I'm not sure if
this is possible with fam. It would be preferable though to have
to refresh to create a thumbnail, than the current behavior.

The bug for this is here:
hasn't been commented on by the maints yet though. I'm ccing
the nautilus list so that maybe we can get this fixed in the 2.2
