Emacs vs distnoted

I’ve been having trouble for a while with Emacs 24.3 and OS X Mavericks; the housekeeping daemon distnoted expands without limit until everything slows to a crawl, and the only cure I know is to quit Emacs and restart.

Turns out there’s a patch available to fix this (that link includes a link to a prebuilt binary, if you’re feeling lazy!)
