My frontend daemon uses inotify to wait for any change to /tmp/pup_event_backend_s then updates the desktop icons etc.
I previously had my backend daemon pup_event_backend_d writing to /tmp/pup_event_backend_s every 2 seconds, for purposes of probing various things, such as whether a CD/DVD inserted. However I did not know how to get udevd to generate a periodic write to that file, so I moved the 2-second timeout functionality into pup_event_frontend_d.
What matters is the end result. Udev is now working nicely in Puppy. I think that I will make it the default.
Another thing that I fixed: in 4.1alpha3 there was an annoying delay before the freememapplet appeared in the tray when first start JWM. I have removed that delay.
