Yes that works; thanks.

Also worth noting is that the fresh copy of the script must be 
closed before it can be executed.  Therefore the <mask> must be 
IN_CLOSE_WRITE rather than IN_MODIFY.  The distinction 
is mentioned in the FAQ at http://inotify.aiken.cz/ .

I'm wondering whether the little wrapper script can be 
eliminated.  Is there a command which "redirects" stdout 
to a specified file until the current script exits?  If 
such a command is the first command in the script and an 
analogue for stderr is the second command, then the wrapper 
is not needed.

Thanks,            ... Peter E.
