Description Matthias Raffelsieper 2007-08-22 10:59:43 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.7)
Installed from:    Gentoo Packages

I have a pdf file in a path that has a pound sign '#' in it. kpdf will open the file just fine, but the watch file will hang. The console gives me

kpdf: WARNING: Unknown mimetype 'inode/directory'.
kpdf: WARNING: KDirWatch: /home/matraf/Uni is a directory. Use addDir!

where the path to the file is /home/matraf/Uni/#cur/out.pdf, ie. it seems to be cut off at the position of the '#'-sign.

Use fromPathOrURL so people with strange dirs with # in them still get watching working
