Title:
  max inotify user watches in the kernel should be increased

Status in “beagle” package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid
Status in “procps” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: beagle

  As described by Joe Shaw in
  http://thomas.apestaart.org/log/?p=482#comment-2699 beagle will fall-
  back to continously indexing a user's files, if it fails to inotfy
  watch all directories for changes. The described solution is
  increasing /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches to some higher value.
  Increasing this number should not have any adverse effects, unless the
  watches are actually used.

  On my system I increased the number to 32768, as i have almost that many sub-directories in my homedir:
  find . -type d | wc -l

  I increased the value by adding "fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 32768"
  to /etc/sysctl.conf, not sure if it can be done in some way only if
  beagle has been installed?
