You're too fast for me.... :D

I like the general idea, but I have some points about it:
- Disappearing marks or replacing marks by older versions is not detected.
- Double updates within one second may get lost.
- I don't think that it hurts to poll every 10 seconds, so IMHO we can
drop the 3600s check.
- When in pause mode with the progress bar on OSD, the OSD doesn't get
updated when the marks get reloaded.

After some iterations I've ended with the attached patch that fixes the
first two issues, and is less messy with lastFileTime. Any change of
file time will be detected, and the new lastChange covers cases where no
marks file is present. There's a small gap with the lastFileTime == t
check on NFS volumes with unsynced clocks, but thats another story.

The third point is a matter of taste, and the fourth is not that important.
