Problem Description:
I tested xlite softphone, first time (started as root) application found my 
sound card, mic and I can record my voice. after some time of experiments with 
this software and asterisk server on another machine, I found that I can not 
record my voice and people dont hear me. I starting to look for something 
strange in logs and found in kern.log

Steps to reproduce:
I don't know how to reproduce it...
It found it because my 'mic' can't record sound any more, but one hour before 
all was fine..

Now I will reboot and report if it will not work again (recording sound).

Problem with mic was not because of this inotify bug. :)
So, what effect of this bug can be on my comp?
Comment 2 Natalie Protasevich 2007-05-23 14:30:50 UTC
Probably someone who works on inotify would like to take a look.
