Description Toms Bauģis 2010-04-03 23:32:17 UTC
when monitoring db file for changes it seems that in case if the db file is actually a symlink to some place else, the changes are not picked up.

use case is multiple computers synced via dropbox (easy and common)
workaround is to symlink other way round.
