inotify gets confused if through a symlink the same file is watched twice

repo owner created an issue

having a symlink to '.' confuses the watching of the current directory.

    The Linux inotify API is based on inodes, so watching two paths that resolve to the same inode results in a single watch descriptor, which confused python-inotify.

    Mostly fixed in revision #86274226007e, but I still want to rewrite the python-inotify model to be based on file paths rather than inodes and do the translation correctly.
