pyinotify issue

Good day,

I just installed pyinotify on my gentoo box.

When I test the library through "pyinotify.pv -v /tmp" under root,
everything works great, but when I try the same thing under my local
user account, I receive the following error:
Error: cannot watch . (WD=-1)

Not very helpful. I've tried VERBOSE=True mode, but it doens't provide
any additional information.

I also tried it for a directory in my home folder just to be sure it's
not a permission problem, but no luck.

Any ideas?
