Description Manish Sinha 2013-04-19 03:41:42 UTC
Originally logged on Launchpad

By blacklisting path "/home/user/folder", I would expect Zeitgeist to stop logging all activities regarding files within that folder. Still, logging happens to those files, if their path include symlinks like "/home/user/Desktop/folder" pointing to "/home/user/folder".

Basically for every folder path, we need to check if the path is a symlink and then check if the path is actually present in the blacklist templates
