mmh ok i should resend it  ( on the owncloud-client list the mail enters).

Why not? I have your key and you have mine - there is no point not to use 
encryption in mails, that don't go to mailinglists.

Sorry, but i don't unserstand completly what you are telling me. I understood 
The libinotify is only a wrapper for kqueue/kevent that is not 100% compatible 
to inotify API on linux.
So that i don't get notifications for createDir, removeFile and moveFile is 
likely to be a bug of the implemention, so I'll file a bug against libinotify.
