I'm using the "-F" option of tail for some files which get rotated away.

After the changes to use kqueue/kevent it didn't work as expected
anymore. tail exits after the file gets rotated.
Perhaps it didn't wait long enough to see the new file: I did a "tail
test.txt" in one terminal and a "mv test.txt; touch test.txt" in another
and I got "tail: test.txt: No such file or directory".

The same test with rev 1.11 of usr.bin/tail/forward.c succedes.


                   It's not a bug, it's tradition!
