      Description

      Hey,

      I am watching a directory and all it's subdirectories and files using QFileSystemWatcher.

      I have a subfolder containing files:
      folder/
      folder/subfolder/
      folder/subfolder/test.txt

      when all of these files are watched, I cannot rename or delete subfolder unless i stop watching these directories and files.

      I have created a small demo that will demonstrate this:

      it relies on a folder "~/test" eg C:/Users/USER/test to exist.

      First it proves that it can create a sub folder, adds subfolder and a file and then rename the folder.

      Then it starts watching the files and directories using QFileSystemWatcher and tries the same procedure again.

      The process will fail when it tries to rename the folder.
