Rather, misunderstanding..

I think the only confusing part of the hook is that path= returns the path of the
file in question, always, but the rest of the information is in regards to whatever
inode was needed in making a decision on what to do.  If the inode belonging to
the file was not important (or not available) to make a decision with, then its not
going to be reported.
