Description Florian Weimer 2016-02-04 15:06:30 UTC
Bug 14906 does not completely address the issue because no inotify event is generated for a file if it is deleted and its use count does not reach zero because there are remaining hard links to it.

We probably should adjust TRACED_DIR_MASK to include IN_DELETE.

The fix for bug 984 should paper over this issue.
