Hm, dunno, have to check. Please file a bugreport.

That's because we poll the files/ directories only if their mtime
changed. But since the mtime is given in seconds (some systems support
more precise times, but that's not portable) there's a race here. But
that should be easy to fix. Please file a bug report.

That was my initial idea too, but that breaks with my top panel
(probably because some plugins are set to expand then) and only a
crippled trash icon is displayed. Maybe Jasper can sched some light on this.
