Both Tracker and the GFileMonitor (obtainable fx. vi g_file_monitor())
use inotify. And I am quite sure that GIOs monitoring doesn't provide
recursive watching.

Last time I check Tracker simply crawled you FS on each startup
installing monitors on all directories in the indexed paths.

When FSNotify is universally available in kernels and there pops up a
GIO backend for GFileMonitor that uses fsnotify we may have a chance of
doing relatively cheap recursive watching. Otherwise btrfs will also be
of help when it goes mainstream. But until then I'd strongly advice
against large scale file monitoring (unless one has significant manpower
resources to throw at it).

Status in Unity Files Place: New

Bug description:
Files that are not reachable because they have been moved or deleted should not 
appear in the documents view.
However if nautilus is patched to tell us that something was copied or moved we 
could still display it by showing the right path.
However deleted items should not be there at all...
