+Summary: mod-mono-server fails to monitor file changes on Novell share
+Description of Problem:
+On a local Linux partition, mod-mono-server flushes
+the cache for a file when it has changed recently.  On a Novell share, Mono
+fails to monitor file changes and as a result continues to cache the page
+anyway, so changes to the file only show up after restarting
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Move some web site that already works correctly to a Novell share, and
+mount that share to the file system using ncpmount.
+2. Point Apache at that share for its web site.
+3. View an ASPX page of the web site from a browser.
+4. Modify that same page on the Novell file system.  
+5. View the page again on a browser and click Refresh.
+Actual Results:
+The original file version is read from cache and sent to the browser.  
+Expected Results:
+The new file version should be read from disk on the server and processed
+and sent to the browser.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time, until mod-mono-server.exe is restarted.
+Additional Information:
+IIS fails to host ASP.NET web sites at all off of Novell shares because IIS
+"failed to start monitoring file changes on..." at any aspx file access.
