MOVE_SELF handling renames the directory incorrectly
You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu

Status in “pyinotify” package in Ubuntu: Confirmed
I have a path fully watched. Rename one directory from "test_dir", to "test_dir_renamed" (note that they "overlap").
So, it gets into process_IN_MOVE_SELF(), and tries to fix the paths that it has in the watch managers.
In the loop where it checks which paths to choose, it gets: "tests/home_dir/root/test_dir_renamed".
The src_path is:
The dest_path is:
And the code *incorrectly* renames it to:
One way to avoid this overlapping issue is to add the "/" to the source_path, so you don't get in the trap of comparing with .startswith().
A patch is attached here that fixes the problem in the described way.
