To get around the issue, the undocumented ---disable-inotify option may help
(note the three dashes)
If that does help then there is an issue with the misdetection
of a known file system as local, when it should be treated as remote.
Can you show the file system type for the file you're trying to tail, using:
stat -f -c '%t %T' /path/to/your/file
