    Jni library loaded by System.load fails on later call to System.loadLibrary

      I'm attempting to use jnotify to listen for directory modifications. This requires using jni to dynamically link to a c library. I have gotten everything to work successfully if I put the library on the java.library.path. However, I would prefer to let my application specify the full path to the jnotify library. My understanding is that I should be able to do a System.load("/foo/libjnotify.so") in a static block and then subsequent calls to System.loadLibrary("jnotify") should do nothing as the library is already loaded. However I am getting a 'Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no jnotify in java.library.path'. Am I misunderstanding the correct usage of these System calls?
