I am long-time user of Shutter. I use it on a laptop with 12.04 and Shutter 0.89.1 with a local home directory. I am not using a network folder. I test changing the Shutter snapshot folder to /tmp just in case.

Recently I started seeing the "Error while adding the file monitor." error while starting Shutter (once for each session image) or when taking a snapshot.

When I start Shutter from the command line this is what I get:
WARNING: Net::DBus::GLib is missing --> Ubuntu One support will be disabled!

WARNING: Gtk2::AppIndicator is missing --> there will be no icon showing up in the status bar when running Unity!

(shutter:2037): gnome-vfs-modules-WARNING **: Could not initialize inotify

Now command line message is displayed when you take a snapshot, you get the "Error while adding the file monitor." in a pop-up dialogue. Has some recent change in vfs or inotify has broken Shutter?
