Has the operation of inotify (or some related system) changed?

Can anyone tell me if the operation of the kernel mechanism for notifying applications of changes to files has changed recently?  I have two very recent (and apparently converse) problems:

(1) I have used gftp for years.  Normally, when I edit a file locally, then save it, I see a notification that the file has changed and asking me if I want to re-upload to the server.  This has stopped happening.

(2) I have used emelfm2 as my file manager for several years.  Recently, when displaying a directory in which a file has changed while the program is open, the display constantly resets itself to reflect the change.  This is annoying in a large directory, because the alphabetical sort takes me back to the top.
