How do you figure out the file type inside GFileMonitor's "changed" callback
when the GFileMonitorEvent is a G_FILE_MONITOR_EVENT_DELETED?

I was erroneously using g_file_query_file_type()!=G_FILE_TYPE_DIRECTORY,
without actually looking at the return value, until recently discovered that
since the GFile in question has just been deleted, it would always return
A deleted file doesn't exist so it doesn't have a type.  Since the
event is telling you the file is deleted you already know this and
don't need to query the type (or you can use the fact that
G_FILE_TYPE_UNKNOWN is documented to mean does not exist.

I don't understand what you mean by "don't need to query the type". I want to know if the _EVENT_DELETED was for a regular file or a directory.

Does this mean that I would need to service "changed" for directories with a different callback from what I use for regular files just to be able to differentiate between the file types for this event?
