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.
