Directory Change Notifications do not work

Description

Applications that watch directories on shared folders do not seem to receive notifications when files are added to the directory. Noticed a while ago and just retested with 3.2.4, Ubuntu 10.04 64bit host and WinXP guest. Some tests that I have tried are:

Does not work

  • Write file to shared folder => app watching shared folder
  • Write file to samba share => app watching shared folder

Works (app receives notification and updates view)

  • Write file to shared folder => app watching samba share
  • Write file to samba share => app watching samba share
