Description Jaroslav Reznik 2011-02-23 14:49:55 UTC
Version:           4.6 (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

KDirWatchPrivate::addEntry filters out any paths inside /dev directory. Systemd uses /dev/.systemd/ask-password as communication protocol with outside world and thus systemd kde auth agent.

Are there any reasons to not allow watch on /dev? Hot ground we should not step into? 

Reproducible: Always

Do not filter out /dev/. directories

They are used for system daemons these days, like systemd
