if I am not mistaking the culprit ends up being FAM. Many modern window
managers occasionally stat things like their menu files to see if there is a
need to update. The plus side is if you install a new package it will appear
in the window manager without your effort. The downside is the disk getting
touched now and then.
FAM by the way is a library which abstracts out the "is this file updated
yet?" code and sends events when needed.
