shouldn't... but then it doesn't tell you what file was written to,
either (just blocks) because it's working lower down the stack.  It
gives you a process name though at least.

One of the things I've found fairly often is applications which re-write
the same litle log or config file over and over, with unchanged
contents.  It'd be nice if any disktop-like thing could check for that.
 But that would require knowledge of what files were being accessed.
