[Mono-list] FileSystemWatcher.IncludeSubdirectories breaks watcher?

I'm testing out using FileSystemWatcher in an app.  It works, but the
moment I uncomment "watcher.IncludeSubdirectories = true" I no longer
get events (and no error occurs).

        FileSystemWatcher watcher = new FileSystemWatcher();
        watcher.Path = @"/home/awilliam/tmp";
        watcher.Renamed += new RenamedEventHandler(watcher_Renamed);
        watcher.Changed += new FileSystemEventHandler(watcher_Changed);
        watcher.Created += new FileSystemEventHandler(watcher_Created); 
        watcher.Deleted += new FileSystemEventHandler(watcher_Deleted); 
        watcher.EnableRaisingEvents = true;
        //watcher.IncludeSubdirectories = true;

Is this expected?
