A downward recurse.. I believe there’s no such thing, as that would result in a full filesystem scan.

Oh, okay, then it means I must have been too obscure. Coherent wording is not my gift.

However, if there’s a symbolic link that points to /home, all subdirs of /home would be scanned. That’s what I meant.

OK, I see. In clear terms, what I wanted to say was that if there’s a symbolic link that points to /home/user/temp, then only /home/user/temp should be scanned. However, from my logs, I got that /home/user was scanned, entirely.
