Question Automatically Add feature in Calibre does not work

Hi - I have calibre running on my home server in docker. It's working fine except the "automatically add" ebook feature only seems to work when calibre is launched or restarted (I have calibre running 24/7 acting as a server for calibre-web).

Anyone know how to fix this? I have it monitoring a folder called "Processing" and the ebooks are dropped directly into that folder (no subdirectories in between). It seems to only work when i restart calibre. But if I drop any new books in between restarts it doesn't even notice them. I have debug logs turned on but I just get the initial startup messages but no error messages around automatic add (does the debug log not produce any messages around automatic add?)

This is the docker image I'm using (a fairly popular calibre docker image):
https://hub.docker.com/r/linuxserver/calibre

Code:
QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-abc'
Using calibre Qt style: True

dont use docker images, just use the official binaries. The good lord alone knows what capabilities docker will break.

Is there anyway to figure out how to fix this? I need to use the docker image because of the system I'm running. Do the the logs usually not show automatic add entries (either that it works or it doesnt)?

If the automatic adding is not happening it is because there is no notification being received. so there is nothing to log. If a notification is received and adding fails that will indeed be logged. And no notifications are being received because the container has broken them somehow. The good lord alone knows how.

i have exactly this problem too. I have a watch folder that's been working fine forever, but today I changed the way books are being added into it and now calibre won't import without a restart. As soon as I restart it imports the books perfectly. Any ideas? Nothing has changed in my docker compose so it doesn't feel like docker is causing this.
