Hey! OP here. I submitted this exactly because I kept running into problems with inotify-tools, and other naive inotify wrappers, where tests would execute multiple times in quick succession, or stop executing on file changes, or other odd behavior.

Entr on the other hand works like a charm. You can see on the website that it details a number of edge cases with inotify that it works around. I'm not even sure it's an exhaustive list.
