For some reason I've been spending my Friday night poking at this bug 
trying to determine some type of pattern. 

It appears that Created and Deleted events are generated properly but 
Changed events are not. For example, using your test case I get no 
Changed events. I wrote a stand alone program to monitor the current 
directory and if I run that program and then cat or echo into a file, 
no Changed event fires; however, if I use vi to edit a file and then 
save it I do get a Changed event. Go figure...

I'll attach my additional test program and notes to the bug.
