if it does its job properly, it should sit there unnoticed,
and actually save apps a lot of work when they want to watch files for
changes.  Instead of spinning in a loop polling the file, it can sleep until
it gets woken up by the kernel when it gets an inotify event when the
file changes.

However, strace'ing gam_server shows that something is definitly amiss.
It's doing a zillion poll()'s a second.

I filed a bug on this earlier tonight.
