My use case is this: I have source code on my macOS filesystem, which I edit there using an IDE. That same code is transpiled and executed in a Linux guest, via Parallels Shared Folders (PSF). In the Linux guest, tools like node are using inotify to know when to re-run the compilation. The problem: Changes on the macOS side are NOT triggering any inotify events in the Linux guest, so the watchers don't know when to recompile. I can also reproduce this issue using the Linux tool inotifywait. Creating a new file from macOS on the shared folder does not trigger any events. Interestingly, changes initiated from the Linux host on the macOS hosted PSF *do* trigger inotify events.
