+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: FileSystemWatcher does not recognize file change on Mac OS X
+Description of Problem:
+When monitoring a file with FileSystemWatcher on OS X, it rarely notices file changes.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. compile the attached test case using mcs -target:library -r:nunit.framework.dll 
+2. run nunit-console /nologo KeventWatcherTest.dll
+3. review the NUnit results
+Actual Results:
+The simple test case fails to notice a change in the test file (last write), leading to failure of the 
+test case.
+Expected Results:
+The test case should succeed, even with shorter timeout.
+How often does this happen? 
+In my app 95%+, the attached test case 100% so far.
