I think this is fixed in cvs now - plese confirm
non-regular files and symlink directories do not get put on the metadata
Huh, it is sort of strange...
At first, if the directory is watched and the file is there when
tracker starts watching (indexing in this case) the file is indexed:
waiting for file events...
saving basic metadata for *existing* file /home/m/test with mime
Folder and service type 1
saving basic metadata for *new* file /home/m/test/dev_zero with mime
unknown and service type 8
But, if that directory is being watched by tracker (no file still),
than the file is created, it will be ignored.
Is this intended behaviour?
Best regards, Marcus
