  1. I tried shutting down Dropbox and Google Drive and then making some changes; they were not caught by watch. Of course, it may be that one of those two had already permanently changed the directory, and so I’ll try a new clone the next time I’m at a point without a bunch of outstanding code changes.

    I tried Miller’s example script for chokidar (as shown in the README at https://github.com/paulmillr/chokidar) and it reported “change [filename]” each time I saved a file.

    PS If we can confirm @ying22’s observation that taking weekend trips may resolve the issue, I’d prefer no fix be applied to the codebase—assuming the trips can also be taken during the week.

  2. Webpack uses the new NewWatchingPlugin() by default in the latest version. I had to force the old watch plugin:

    plugins: [ new webpack.OldWatchingPlugin() ]

    This resolved the issue for me.
