The stat() is correct, it's the check for the d_type field coming out of scandir().

20:08 [   jedbrown  ] cworth: I think there are two problems with symlinks.
20:08 [   jedbrown  ] cworth: First, notmuch-new.c:152 checks path_mtime which is mtime for the current directory.
20:09 [   jedbrown  ] cworth: Additionally, won't entry->d_type == DT_LNK for a symlink?
20:14 [     aneesh  ] jedbrown,  i already have a patch posted for that
