fam 2.7.0 uses dnotify in any case, if it's available. It may not be as nice as inotify but it's a hell of a lot better than polling.
Hm. Looking at the sources, gamin has had an inotify backend since v0.0.8, Aug 26 2004, *long* before inotify hit the kernel proper. It is enabled by default.
Looks like this might be an out-and-out bug. I'll have a look this weekend and see if I can reproduce and fix it.
