           Summary: [WIN32] FileSystemWatcher: DefaultWatcher broken
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: SVN
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: System

The DefaultWatcher - which is used on Win32 - is badly broken: it uses the
wrong default filter on Windows (* instead of *.*) - this could easily be fixed
- but more importantly, it manually checks for changes every 750 ms and by
doing this it loses a lot of events.

Also, it does not support the Renamed event.

I think we should be using wrapper for ReadDirectoryChangesW:
