[Mono-list] FileSystemWatcher

With mono 1.2.6 the program starts but crashes as soon as the filesystem
watcher detects any changes in the directory it monitors. I can't give the
error message because windows can't copy from a command prompt but there are
a lot of references to C:\cygwin\tmp\... I don't know why this is as you are
not supposed to need cygwin to run mono.
