bug#13754: Tail 8.13 Bug

Tail seems to have a strange but of the following;

When I 'tail -f' anything, it will output this message:
tail: inotify cannot be used, reverting to polling: Too many open files

But running;
# sudo ls -l /proc/*/fd/ 2>/dev/null | grep inotify | wc -l

Seems to make me think it's some sort of bug.

I'm using `tail 8.13', on Ubuntu 12.04.
