[Gluster-users] GlusterFS and inotify

I recently moved my backend storage to GlusterFS V3.0 and with one exception
everything is running great. That exception is that I had a daemon using
inotify that was watching my storage for new files. Upon arrival this watcher
uploaded a copy of the file to Amazon S3. This daemon had been running just
fine for well over a year. Moving to GlusterFS seems to indicate that inotify
doesn't work on GlusterFS volumes. I don't know if it is a Gluster, Fuse, or
some other problem. inotify just refuses to allow me to register the top level
folder to be watched. Before I spend a lot of time on this, I thought I'd
bounce it off of the "experts" on this list.
Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
