  You're right. I should have mentioned that I'm running a decidedly
modern kernel (2.6.21) which DOES use inotify. Beagle properly indexes
new or changed documents (including Mathematica notebooks) in near-real
time. Again, it could just be a peculiarity of how I have things set up.
  Strange, though, that Mathematica's graphics is the only thing I've
found (so far) which causes this saturation of Beagle's indexing
