FileSystemWatcher detect changes OK in regular directories but it fails to
raise ANY events for directories that are SMB (samba) shares.

In my case windows share was mounted to /home/mono/MsuDz2
changes to this directory were not detected. When I switched to monitor regular
directory /home/mono/test - events were raised correctly.

command used for mount:
mount -t cifs // /home/mono/MsuDz2

mount was successful as application could read / list / write files to

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.mount smb share to local file system
2.set FileSystemWatcher to monitor changes to this directory
