External file changes sync may be slow?

Hi All,

I saw this when running 132.637 on Linux. I didn't notice any slowness (maybe this is a very small toy project). Is it something I need to worry about when working with big projects?

the message means that IDEA cannot monitor parts of your project by means of receiving notifications about changed files and have to resort to periodical polling. On a big project this means you may modify project files externally, then switch back to IDEA and it will notice the change only after some time.
