This seems to have slowed down now. I'm just seeing a few entries 
popping up.
- How can you tell that healing has completely finished?
- Is it possible to heal a file while it is being modified?  (E.g. a 
virtual machine image)

I'm guessing this is the automatic self-heal adding the files to the queue.
