[Mono-osx] FileSystemWatcher

Are there any known issues using FileSystemWatcher on OS X? (v10.4.8,  
Mono 1.2.1 preview)

I have an object model where some objects have their own watcher to  
monitor a single file. The instances are set up like this:

fsw = new FileSystemWatcher(dir, file);
fsw.NotifyFilter = NotifyFilters.LastWrite | NotifyFilters.Size;
fsw.Changed += ...
fsw.EnableRaisingEvents = true;

Yet they rarely notice file changes. The files are on the local HFS+  
volume and are either manipulated via SMB or through the app itself.

 From time to time my app also crashes on startup with a SIGABRT in  
FileSystemWatcher:get_MangledFilter (called  
from :set_EnableRaisingEvents).

Any ideas?
