I checked again. It is still limited to 1000 files or directories at a time.

I think you are wrong, because the manpage (for IRIX) says otherwise.
Additionally, it wouldn't be of much use for kde etc. if it only could monitor files. I think a filemanager would mainly be interested in directory changes (files added/deleted).
Then there's also dnotify (also reference from the FAM site) - there's hope that the "d" isn't an acronym for "file" ;).Now this one is quite interesting. It requires at least kernel 2.4.19, so I guess I'm at the edge of kernel development. (!) It just might do the trick, and maybe even better than I hoped. Thanks.
I remember someting about recent 2.4.x versions having the prerequisites to use that.
I don't have any expirience on win32, but just searched google.Yep, that's it. With some "unicode update", it even works on Win95. But I'm going to leave the Windows work for someone else.
There's Win32::ChangeNotify for perl, described here
and this seems to use ReadDirectoryChangesW, decribed here:
